Mayor Announces bike lanes on 8th Street
ANDERSON – IN – Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr. announced today that during the current repaving of 8th Street the city will be striping designated areas for shared bike lanes. The shared lanes will allow for existing parking on 8th Street while allowing bicyclists to travel more safely.
Mayor Broderick explained that the bike lanes will begin near the foot of the Eisenhower Bridge on the east side and run east to Scatterfield Road and will begin at the intersection of
Brown-Delaware Street and run west to Raible Avenue. The estimated cost of installation for the striping and signage will be between $25,000 to $35,000.
Mayor Broderick stated, “As we continue to improve our downtown area and work to attract young people into our community it is important that we continue to improve the quality of life. These new bike lanes will allow for connectivity from the west side of town to the east side in a safe and effective manner. We have had considerable interest in the community from local businesses and residents alike for this type of improvement. Many communities are now going to the shared bike lane concept to both protect bikers and motorists. We are excited about these improvements and look forward to implementation by late October.”
