The Indian Village Neighborhood Association (IVNA) is sponsoring a meeting to discuss the Lincoln Bike Plan as it pertains to that neighborhood, which is bounded by Van Dorn Street and Highway 2, from Ninth to 20th streets.
The meeting is set for 7-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 11, at St. Mark Lutheran Church, 3930 S. 19th St. Representatives from the Lincoln/Lancaster County Planning Department, Lincoln Parks and Recreation, and the Nebraska State Department of Transportation will provide information about the Bike Plan and answer questions.
Five Bike Plan projects are within Indian Village and include construction of a side path along 13th Street (Project #160), a pedestrian signal on Highway 2 at High Street plus shared lanes on several streets (#23), a bike lane on Pioneers Boulevard connecting 13th Street with the Jamaica North Trail (#145), a bicycle boulevard on 17th Street from Burnham to South streets (#21), and shared lanes on Burnham and South 14th streets (#22).
“We are especially concerned about connectivity between the Bison and Boosalis trails, and a safe way to cross Highway 2 to access Van Dorn Park and businesses west of the highway,” said Elizabeth Cody, IVNA vice-president. “We want our neighborhood to be safe and accessible for all modes of traffic.”
Indian Village residents, and cyclists who use trails and streets in the area, are invited to attend. Details regarding the specific projects can be found at lincolnbikeplan.com. Information specific to Indian Village can be found on Facebook at Indian Village Ped/Bike Safety, or email@example.com.
