Master bicycle plan in the works in Edmond
EDMOND, Okla. — The City of Edmond is working toward a new master bicycle plan that would incorporate biking trails, bike lanes and bike routes.
The planning department hopes to add miles and miles of bicycle-friendly facilities around town.
They have been working on the master bicycle plan since January.
“We’re proposing to build shoulders for roads in east Edmond to provide a place for long distance cyclists to go,” City Planner Jan Ramseyer Fees said. “We’re pushing forward on building side paths and multi-use trails for cyclist. We’re trying to provide a lot of connections within our community.”
Now, Edmond planners are asking for the public to log on to the Edmond Master Bicycle Plan website, edmondok.com/BicycleEdmond and offer their thoughts on the plan and the map.
Construction on a pilot plan in the UCO area could start as soon as the end of the year.
There is a public comment hearing scheduled for Sept.13.
