TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Topeka is on it's way to becoming more bike friendly!
Mayor Larry Wolgast signed a resolution Friday to get a bike trail plan started.
The $1.6 million project will place more "sharrows" on the roads, as well as more bike lane signs, striping and side paths. A sharrow is a marking placed within the street to indicate it is a shared lane for motorists and bicyclists.
Wolgast says this is a very significant step for the city.
"It's placing Topeka among communities that put a high priority on establishing bike ways, making our streets so they are user friendly for everyone -- pedestrians, those on bicycles as well as those in automobiles," said Wolgast.
Wolgast is hoping more people will get out and ride their bikes if Topeka is more bike friendly.
