Today was a beautiful day to ride a bike.
But when your commute requires you to brave unsafe conditions like the free-flowing, high-speed on-ramps and off-ramps of Fairmount Avenue the stress from that experience can cloud a beautiful day.
As a result of 35 years of community advocacy, Mid City residents will have a safe biking alternative to the northern section of Fairmount Avenue. The SR 15 Commuter Bikeway, part of the SR 15 Visions Project which calls for a complete and multi-modal freeway corridor, will provide that alternative when the separated bike path opens next year.
This Tuesday, March 1, the SR 15 Commuter Bikeway goes to construction with a groundbreaking ceremony to kick it off.
