Columbia to add bicycle boulevard

This week Columbia had public hearings about creating a bicycle boulevard on Ash and Windsor streets.

KOMU TV reports:

"A bike boulevard is a concept that's from the west coast where you take a residential street that has through traffic and you do the best you can to eliminate through traffic and make it more friendly for bikes and pedestrians," GetAbout Columbia Bike Program Manager Ted Curtis said.

GetAbout Columbia is hoping a bike boulevard on Windsor and Ash streets will help make traveling safer for bicyclists and pedestrians.
