Been thinking about commuting downtown by bike but don’t like the idea of fighting the traffic? Riding your bike downtown should be a lot more comfortable for riders who aren’t seasoned veterans by the end of summer. That’s because the Spokane City Council on Monday accepted a bid to complete the Downtown Bicycle Network, which will add six miles of new bike routes.
Construction is expected to begin soon and will include improvements such as a separated bike lane near Fourth Avenue and Browne Street. The Spokesman-Review looks at the other bike lanes and signage that will be included in the project.
