From the Missourian:
Cooperation between GetAbout Columbia and Boone Hospital Center will create a series of new bicycle and pedestrian corridors throughout northern Columbia.
Though there is no finished design yet, Steve Meyer of GetAbout Columbia said a possible location for one of the corridors is along East Walnut Street between North William Street and Old 63 North.
That area is one the residents of Benton-Stephens are eager to see finished. “It is very dangerous with nowhere to safely walk,” said Kip Kendrick, president of the Benton-Stephens Neighborhood Association.
Also under consideration is the type of corridor that will be created. The final plan could incorporate pedways, sidewalks, lane markings or a combination of the three in downtown areas.
The project is still in its early stages, Meyer said. The design is unfinished, and there is no anticipated date for a final design.
Kendrick said the lack of safe routes for pedestrians and cyclists has been an ongoing issue. Read more.
“Bicycle Corridor” has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
But why limit bikes and peds to certain routes? Let’s make every street friendly to cyclists and pedestrians (i.e. Complete Streets).
