Detroit area getting more bike-friendly projects

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Mich. (AP) -- Construction is scheduled to begin next year on a number of projects designed to make roadways in the Detroit area more bicycle-friendly.

The Detroit Free Press reports a focus on safety is part of what is driving the expansion of biking infrastructure in the area. Warren, Detroit, Ferndale and the Grosse Pointe communities are among those planning significant bicycle-friendly projects.

In Warren, for example, the right lane in both directions of a more than one-mile stretch of roadway will be converted to a bike lane.

In addition to local efforts to build bike lanes and paths, the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments and the Michigan Department of Transportation are looking at bicycling in their regional non-motorized plan for the seven-county region.
