New Parkwood Avenue bike lanes open (QC Nerve)

Advocates have been lobbying for improved pedestrian infrastructure along Parkwood Avenue since Al Gorman was struck and killed while riding a bike on the road in 2015.

“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.”
