New bike lanes near uptown debut on 5th, 6th streets (Queen City News)

New bike lines debuted near Uptown this weekend and city leaders held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to break in the newly minted travel paths for city cyclists.

“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 Sustain Charlotte Founder and Executive Director Shannon Binns. “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.”
