Bicyclists in Columbia will soon have a safer riding route.

The city’s Bike Boulevard will connect the MKT Trail near Lathrop Road to Business Loop 70. The project will give bicyclists designated bike lanes along the streets in the bike boulevard's route. . . .

“Those markings will constantly remind motorists to be on the lookout for bicyclists and other non-motorized transportation users,” Dalton said.

He said the project will also include the installation of crosswalks near Hickman High School and a center median island with flashing pedestrian beacons at the intersection of Broadway and Aldeah Avenue.
