Charlotte opens protected bike lanes on fifth and sixths streets (South Charlotte Weekly)

The City of Charlotte celebrated the completion of new bike lanes along Fifth and Sixth streets April 16 that improve safety for cyclists, pedestrians and motorists. The protected bike lane project makes for the first completed segment of the Uptown CycleLink Program.

“This event marks the opening of a bike path that over 4,000 residents joined us in asking the city to build in 2016,” said Shannon Binns, founder and executive director for Sustain Charlotte. “We applaud CDOT staff, city council and Center City Partners for honoring this request and making Uptown safer and more accessible. We look forward to working with the city to make more of our streets safe for all users.”
