Council approves bike lanes along St. Mary

Posted: Updated:

The Lafayette City-Parish Council approved an ordinance Tuesday to install bike lanes along St. Mary Boulevard.

The project is being supported by the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. UL Lafayette will reimburse LCG up to $70,000 to cover the cost and expense associated with the project.

According to the written ordinance, the lanes are part of the university's master plan. A plan to encourage cycling along St. Mary Boulevard between Taft and St. Landry Streets.

The ordinance received full council approval. Local organization Bike Lafayette supports the idea. LCG agrees with Bike Lafayette saying the lanes will help with safety and provide an alternate mode of transportation.
