Downtown Bike Lanes Disappear from Plan for Oklahoma City Boulevard
Oklahoma City has been planning a downtown boulevard for six years, all throughout that process the project has been pushed in part as a way to make the city more accessible for pedestrians and cyclists. Now that the project has been awarded to a contractor, plans show only a sidewalk and a road. Or, as city officials would have you call it, a pathway, because it is illegal to ride a bike on the sidewalk in Oklahoma City.
"Only when the construction bid was awarded last week and a new rendering was released did the public learn of the change, " Steve Lackmeyer reports for The Oklahoman.
