Lombard and South Bike Lane Meeting Tonight

OK, put away the party hats from the Spruce and Pine repaving celebration, there is another project on the agenda that would make a true crosstown bike route a reality.

The City proposes to fill in the gap between the South Street Bridge and Spruce/Pine/22nd by striping bike lanes on Lombard and South Streets. Tonight's meeting will offer a presentation of the proposal as well as provide time for community input.

If approved the bike lanes on Lombard and South could be installed by the time the South Street Bridge opens in November. That is why it is so important for cyclists to show their support for the project.
