Bike lanes and pedestrian plazas are on the way to downtown Memphis, as city officials plan to launch the Great Streets Pilot Project on June 26.

The project, which will run in conjunction with the national conference for the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycling Professionals hosted in Memphis, will implement protected bike lanes and pop-up pedestrian plazas along a space between east of the Fedex Forum and the riverfront.

Further information, such as infrastructure details and timelines will be presented by the city's Department of Engineering and UrbanArt Commission at a public meeting on Tuesday, May 2, at the Crossit Library beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Bikeway and Pedestrian Manager for the City of Memphis, Nicholas Oyler, will be there to answer any questions.
