Public Works to begin Holding 2nd Virtual Meeting Sessions for Proposed Citywide Bike Lanes
City residents will have an opportunity to review the proposed detailed design and provide feedback for bike lanes designated along eight corridors throughout the city. Due to COVID-19, the sessions will be held virtually from Thursday, September 3 thru Thursday, September 17.

Several months ago virtual meetings were held for review of the concept for the project. The detailed design is the result of more than 800 responses received from those who attended and submitted ideas for these locations:
- Allen Avenue from Colorado Avenue to Leigh Street
- Belmont Avenue from Chesterfield County Line to Walmsley Boulevard
- Broad Rock Road from Belt Boulevard to Forest Hill Avenue / Bainbridge Street
- Fairfield Avenue from N. 26th St to Cool Ln – looks like bike lanes east/west
- Fairmount Avenue from Mosby St to 25th St – looks like an eastbound bike lane, sharrows heading west
- Forest Hill Avenue from 41st Street to Dorchester Road
- Magnolia Street from 1st Avenue to Rady Street
- Rowen Avenue from Trigg Street to 5th Street Bridge
The project is being implemented in conjunction with the Maintenance Resurfacing Program. As paving takes place the lanes and pavement markings will be installed, which will significantly reduce project costs. Some lanes will be put in this fall, others may start in spring 2021, depending upon the paving schedule and funding availability.
