The Columbus City Council approved a plan last night that will add miles of bike lanes along city streets, create dozens of new trails and add racks and a Downtown changing station for people riding on two wheels.
The Bicentennial Bikeways Plan calls for 100 miles of new bike lanes and trails to be built before the city’s 200th birthday in 2012 and a total of 538 miles of lanes and trails over 20 years.
It will cost $20 million for the first goal and $167.6 million for the long-range plan.
