The Office of Transportation is working to develop a preferred route for continuous bicycle facilities to connect existing bike lanes on Grace Drive (providing access from River Hill and points west) to Hickory Ridge, Downtown Columbia and the rest of the Columbia pathway. At the Sept 3 Village Board meeting, the county gave a presentation on the Hickory Ridge Bike Corridor Study. Bike Corridor Presentation
While this is primarily a technical assessment, local knowledge is key to understanding the context and challenges associated with the roadways in the study area. Therefore, the Office of Transportation is administering a survey to gather residents and transient bicyclists’ opinions about the road segments in the study area. The survey also includes an opportunity to sign up for email updates specifically about this project. Click here to complete the survey. The survey will be open until September 15.
