City Councilman Scott Griggs told us of a plan to create a two-way bike lane with traffic barriers on the Jefferson viaduct after an Oak Cliff cyclist was seriously injured there in February.
It looks like the plan really is going to happen. Griggs says the planned Jefferson viaduct bike lanes would cost $157,000 and be paid for with road maintenance funds. The bridge would become a two-way street for motorists, with two 10-foot northbound and two southbound lanes. The two 4-foot bike paths would take the west lane.
