Bikers now have lane of their own in Houma

Updated:

HOUMA, La. (AP) - The 6.7-mile Southdown Loop bicycle path is officially in service, with special markers painted on the road to remind motorists the lane is shared with bikers.

The Courier reports the loop starts at Hollywood Road in Houma, travels along Louisiana Highway 311 to Civic Center Drive, then extends along Polk Street and ends at Valhi Boulevard. The loop also includes a 2.5-mile off-road trail.

Terrebonne Parish senior planner Chris Pulaski says plans for the path include a parking area for vehicles, a loading area, picnic tables and a kiosk with information about the route, safety tips and hours of operation.
