$25,000 bike lanes coming to Fort Worth Avenue

Fort Worth Avenue is to have bike lanes from Stevens Park Village to the Commerce Street bridge.

The Fort Worth Avenue Development Group donated $15,000 and raised an additional $10,000 in donations to design and implement bike lanes along the West Dallas thoroughfare.

The bike lanes will run along Fort Worth Avenue and West Commerce, from Colorado to Beckley.

The two miles of bike lanes is part of an effort to “assist the city in developing bicycle infrastructure within the next six months,” as recommended in the Dallas Bike Plan. The group is expected to provide more information at a media conference Thursday.

    Why does it cost $25,000 to paint a two mile long stripe on the road? It shouldnt cost any more that about $600.
    Hopefully it is worth it to the 4 people that will use these bike lanes.
