Lansing moves to expand bike paths
Lansing cyclists may soon have a new trail to ride their bikes.
The city council recently approved using money from a federal grant to pay for construction of a five mile long bike trail on the city’s south side.
The trail would connect with a more extensive network of trails on Lansing's east side.
Julie Powers is the executive director of the Mid-Michigan Environmental Action Council.
She says expanding Lansing's bike trails is a great idea.
“It’s all part of this larger non-motorized transportation plan that we can safely get people from A to B…or C to D…or to MSU depending on what version of alphabet soup you’re playing,” says Powers.
There are several more hurdles to overcome, but Powers construction of the new trail can begin next year.
