EDMOND — Cars, trucks, city buses and bicycles were traveling along University Drive on Monday, the day after Edmond's first bike lane officially opened.
University Drive was made into a two-lane road with a center turn lane and a bike lane on each side of the road. The project, including resurfacing, cost $697,054.
The project was recommended as part of the bicycle master plan adopted a year ago. The plan suggested 146.2 miles of paths, bike lanes and marked areas for people to ride bicycles throughout the city.
Edmond held its first Open Streets event Sunday to celebrate its first bike lane and Americans with Disabilities Act improvements on University Drive.
The street was closed to allow people to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the bike lane.
The city's latest piece of public art, “Love My Bike,” by San Diego-based artist Amos Robinson, was unveiled in Gossett Park, 717 N University.
