City of Charlotte celebrates grand opening of separated bike lanes on Parkwood Avenue (WCCB)

On Friday, the City of Charlotte celebrated the grand opening of new bike lanes on Parkwood Avenue that will improve safety for cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists.

“This segment of Parkwood has been transformed from a dangerous road for moving cars to a complete street that will be safer for all users: pedestrians, cyclists, bus riders and drivers,” said Sustain Charlotte Founder and Executive Director Shannon Binns. “We are thrilled that the city has responded to the community’s plea for safety as we know it will result in a dramatic reduction, if not elimination, of lost lives and serious injuries on this road. We will continue to partner with residents and the city to bring safer streets like this to all neighborhoods.”
