TDOT Announces Bike Lanes for Henley

Just because it's not here does not mean we can't compliment other cities. So way to go Knoxville!!!!!!

From Metro Pulse
Victory! The Tennessee Department of Transportation just announced it will build two bike lanes on the Henley St. Bridge instead of another lane for cars.

The announcement comes in response to the recommendation by the City of Knoxville, whose recommendation came in response to Jack Neely's piece last month (or as they put it, "strong public support" at a meeting about the issue. Sure).

Better get those tires pumped and gears greased! Only 36 months from when work begins next year!

Here's the press release in full for all you bicycle boosters:
