i have heard, granted 3rd hand, that some major improvements are planned for the bike path system around the city.
1 - bancroft is going to be changed to one lane each way with a center turn lane AND bike lanes specifically put in place... i would guess this means painted lanes primarily.
2 - starting at jermain park and the auburn ave bridge over I475, a new path along the creek will go under central ave and precede through the old jeep plant property up to cherry/collingwood and then follow manhatten to meet up with the trail at summit street.
3 - the abandoned rail line along douglas up to general mills and down to river road will be completed. the bridge at the river is not structurally secure so that can not be completed.
if true very good news for the city and those several groups who will benefit from such an amenity. anyone with additional info?
