Bike lanes planned for Sylvan

Bike lanes are planned on Sylvan between Kessler Parkway and Colorado, and the city wants your input.

The proposal is to take Sylvan to four lanes instead of six and to make buffered bike lanes on each side of the street. The changes could make that stretch of hilly, winding road bikeable for almost anyone.

Funding and a timetable have not been worked out yet, but a community meeting is set for 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 10 at Salon Las Americas.

    Most importantly, it will slow traffic to speeds that are more accommodating to the residents of the adjacent neighborhoods. All of those who live near Sylvan should be vehemently FOR this project.

    The best change will occur when the lanes eventually reach Kidd Springs.

    These buffered bike lanes are absolutely essential, especially in a residential area like this.
