Bucks County Moves Forward With Bike Plan

The Bucks County Commissioners have awarded the Philadelphia firm Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson, prepare a countywide bicycle plan.

The plan will be developed as part of the county’s overall comprehensive plan, which will cover recreation, transportation and open space among other components.

The commissioners first appointed a bicycle task force in 2008, which recommended that the county conduct a study that will guide plans for enhancing the county’s path and bikeway system. The study is expected to be completed in about 18 months.
