Environmental Quality Commission to review plans for potential bike loop

Oct 18, 2012

The Jefferson City Public Works and Planning Committee submitted plans for a potential bike loop Thursday.

Jefferson City city engineer Matt Morasch says many bicycle groups have requested roadway markings and signs in addition to the current designated path from The Katy Trail to the Capital.

The potential bike loop would be an expansion of signage and pavement markings totaling more than 16 miles.

"They’re asking in this request to just more or less designate that as a loop or get it some kind of designation where we can put up signs for motorist, make them aware that they are likely to encounter bicyclists on that route," said Morasch.

The Public Works and Planning Committee submitted the plans to The Environmental Quality Commission for further review.

The Commission will meet next week with the bicycle plan on the agenda for discussion.
