City to Hold Public Meeting About McLean Bike Lane

Posted By on Thu, May 9, 2013 at 3:01 PM


The McLean Avenue bike lane has been in place now for about one year, so the city's engineering division is planning a May 14th meeting to ask citizens for feedback.

The section of bike lane between Poplar and Overton Park caused a stir among some residents of that area last year due to loss of on-street parking, so the city eventually allowed car parking in the bike lanes after 7 p.m. Some residents are apparently still complaining.

A Liveable Memphis email calling for bike lane supporters to make an appearance at the meeting are asking them to attend the meeting and give "positive feedback to the city for creating this essential bike corridor."

Although the most controversial area extends from Poplar to Overton Park, the city's bicycle and pedestrian coordinator Kyle Wagenschutz will be on hand to discuss any concerns or support for the entire McLean corridor from Lamar to Hunter. The meeting will be held at Snowden Elementary School from 6 to 8 p.m.
