The City of Tyler/MPO Bicycle Task-Force Meeting was on Thursday Afternoon March 19, 2015. Below is a brief summary of the the meeting.
- I question was posed about riding bicycles on city sidewalks; the city confirmed that there is no ban on riding bicycle on sidewalks.
- TxDOT confirmed that there is sufficient room for bike lanes on Old Jacksonville hwy. No lanes have been designated and that is why there is no signage.
- A new bike route in the city were proposed and a short presentation was made.
- Another presentation was made on the proposed extension of the South Tyler Trail System. The Legacy Trail will have two routes: one route will extend from Grande, along Old Jacksonville hwy to Gresham; the other route will follow Dueling Oaks, south to W. Cumberland Rd. State and local funds, as well as donations will pay for the proposed extension.
