Cyclists on the Paseo might have a new bike lane coming soon, but dollars might cause a delay.

Kansas City's Department of Public Works is planning the metro's longest bike lane. It's expected to cover more than 19 road miles of the Paseo, stretching from Independence Avenue all the way to 85th Street.

Public Works leaders said it could be similar to the bike lane on Southwest Boulevard, and it will cost more than $1 million. So far, the city has $750,000 to spend, most of which is federal grant money.

Public Works spokesperson Beth Breitenstein said the city wants this bike lane because it would serve as a strong north-south connector for commuters.

"It's another transportation option," Breitenstein said. "I think the more dense and vibrant the city becomes, having more options is a win-win for everybody."
