Edmond's Bicycle Master Plan churns up excitement
A 90-page bicycle master plan was approved by this week by the Edmond City Council. A pilot program to initiate the master plan is in the works.
Davis said a recommended pilot program will create bicycle lanes on University Boulevard along the west side of the University of Central Oklahoma.
Plans are to reconfigure the four-lane street to include two lanes for traffic, a turn lane and two bicycle lanes, said Jan Ramseyer Fees, a bicycle enthusiast and city planner.
City officials plan to include the bicycle lanes with another project at University and Ayers where the area will be upgraded to meet Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, such as ramps, signage and audible signals.
Plans are to start the $370,000 project in June after UCO breaks for the summer.
Consultants charged $146,000 to write the master plan.
City officials also will apply in December for federal money through the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments for bicycle signage and roadway markings.
