Next set of bike lanes include Government Road and Williamsburg Road

The city is hosting a big meeting at the Main Library on Franklin Street to publicly vet plans for over 20 miles of new bike lanes on November 22, 2016, from 5:00 – 7:00 PM.

Local bike lanes in the plan include Government Road from 36th to Williamsburg Road, and Williamsburg Road from Main Street to Government Road.

The plans being presented will be in different stages of completion, so your feedback will be important in informing what the final products look like.

Here are a couple of questions to consider going into the meeting:

  • What makes you feel most comfortable when riding in a bike lane? Would you prefer physical protection separating you from traffic (plastic posts, curb, planter boxes, parked cars), or are painted stripes enough?
  • What is most likely to get more people riding? What would it take for an 80-year-old grandmother to feel safe riding to the store? Or for her to feel confident allowing her 8-year-old grandchild to bike to school?

RSVP HERE

More great news for transportation connections in Fulton! We also need crosswalks, as well as sidewalks on both sides of Government Road.

Parking and bike-per improvements are both needed. Hopefully, the two can both be developed. As Fulton gets redeveloped, both will be key.
