Car AccidentsDedicated Bike Lanes Make Getting to School Safer

August 22, 2012by Aaron Allison

A South Austin neighborhood will benefit from a new bikeway this school year. One of the main changes is that the bikeway is separated from the roadway by posts (also known as bollards). With school about to start for the year, the new features will provide students a safer option for biking to school.

In addition to getting children to school safely, the changes also allow area residents to bike over to the Roy and Ann Butler Hike and Bike Trail and Zilker Park with fewer concerns.

Nadia Barrera, an employee of the city’s public works department, told YNN that the project “helps neighbors in the area get down to these regional facilities, but also South Austin will be able to come down safely and comfortably.”
