WEST MONROE, La. – (5/17/19) West Monroe has opened new bike lanes just in time for the May’s Bike Month.
The new bike paths are on Ridge Avenue, Olympic Drive, and Tulane Avenue. The City of West Monroe says additional paths are in the works.
“The bike lanes are a great addition to our community and as we have streets that become available as far as they need to have striping or overlaying or things and have the adequate right of way then we’re going to add bike lanes to that,” said Mayor Staci Albritton Mitchell.
Whatever your reasons for bicycling, the City of West Monroe encourages you to do so safely and encourages motorists to be mindful of bicyclists on the road.
