Area in downtown Detroit slated for bicycle lanes

By  | 

DETROIT-- A rapidly transforming area of downtown Detroit could see two-way, buffered bike lanes and improvements for pedestrians as early as next year.
The Detroit Free Press reports construction would come among a slate of similar changes pegged for other nearby downtown areas and could coincide with the launch of Detroit Bike Share, which is planned in the spring.
The proposal could cost up to $3 million if implemented fully.
Downtown Detroit Partnership CEO Eric Larson says the goal is to continue building and improving the infrastructure for various types of mobility. He says embracing alternative ways of transportation is a key ingredient for a successful community.
Details for the project haven't been finalized, and Larson says feedback on the proposal is being sought.
