Full Bike Lanes – Grove Road

with 6 comments

I took a quick Labor Day spin this morning through Richardson, and on my way home, I picked a new route to explore. To my surprise, I discovered that Grove Road, just south of Arapaho was re-zoned with full bike lanes in each direction.

Since I typically don’t go this way, I’m not exactly sure how long these lanes have been here nor how far south they go. I’m guessing they are there to make the connection to the Arapaho DART Rail station. I have to say, this made my day. I’m hoping to see more lanes like this throughout Richardson.

EDIT: I’ve run across a news article about this. Go here to read. Apparently, Custer Road has this type of lane as well. I’ll need to check it out this weekend.
