Knoxville holding meeting on plan to make city more bicycle-friendly

Posted:
KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The city of Knoxville is holding a meeting to discuss and get public input on a Bicycle Facilities Plan later this month.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 21 at 5:30 p.m. at the East Tennessee History Center, 601 S. Gay Street.

The plan is being developed by professional design consultants Kimley-Horn and Associates and Toole Design Group.

City officials say the plan will determine a 50-mile citywide bikeway network to make traveling by bicycle in Knoxville more accessible, safe and convenient.

The consultants will make recommendations for 20 high priority short term projects that address barriers to cycling and/or improve important connections in the bikeway network. This includes on-road and off-road facilities.

During the first public meeting, consultants will review the purpose of the plan, preliminary recommendations and upcoming milestones. Public comments will be welcomed. A second public meeting, yet to be scheduled, will focus on presenting the consultants' findings.

The plan is expected to be complete by September 2014.
