"Olive Link" in University City to be made bicycle-friendly

University City is receiving a $2.7 million grant to upgrade Olive Boulevard and a number of are streets, making the entire area more appealing and more bike/ped friendly.

According to a St. Louis Post-Dispatch article:
University City will use part of the grant to establish a 17-mile bicycle route on various streets, connecting parks and schools. The first section is scheduled to open in the summer of 2005.

Bicyclists will ride on roads along with automobile traffic, for most of the route.
The project includes extra road width for cyclists, signage, and a number of cycling-related amenities such as bike parking at parks and schools.
