INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Feb. 23, 2016)– Hoosiers could see new bike lanes in Indianapolis, but first, the Indy Metropolitan Planning Organization wants your input.

The bike lanes would cost more than $200 million over 20 years. The project would create a safe system for more than 2,000 miles of bike paths around central Indiana.

Instead of focusing on trails, the organization wants more side paths next to streets.

Wednesday is the last day to speak up about the plans. Public comments may be made by phone to Jeremy Moore at 327-5495, emailed to Jeremy.moore@indy.gov.

A public hearing will be held Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the Metropolitan Indianapolis Board of Realtors (MIBOR) offices located at 1912 N. Meridian Street. The hearing will take place in a large conference room on the second floor.
