The City of Charlotte celebrated the completion of new bikes lanes along Fifth and Sixth Streets on Saturday. City officials say the new lanes will improve safety for cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists. The completion of the new lanes represents 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 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.”
