UNL Wants to Work with City to Expand Bike Lanes

bike-lane(AP) — The University of Nebraska-Lincoln wants to work with the city to expand bike lanes that will affect students.

School officials recently introduced a master plan that includes more bike lanes along areas that intersect with the city. The Board of Regents has already approved the plan.

School officials say they’re working with the city’s parks and recreation department in developing bike lanes that would make downtown riding safer.

Jennifer Dam, assistant director for campus planning, says there’s no specific timeline in place. But school officials want the project completed in the next 10 to 15 years.
