After further review, feedback and evaluation, the temporary dedicated bike lane on West Water Street in downtown Troy will be converted to a shared lane. By Monday, September 11th, parking along the south side of West Water Street will be reestablished, restoring additional on-street spaces for downtown employees, customers, and visitors. “We’ve heard from the vocal community who were concerned that the bike lane was not ideally situated as a connection between the Great Miami Recreational Trail and our downtown. Converting to a shared road will maintain that important link, while at the same time restoring parking in the downtown,” stated Troy Mayor Michael Beamish. The City remains committed to its Bike-Friendly status and will continue to evaluate additional bike-friendly initiatives in compliance with Troy’s Complete Streets Policy, which was unanimously adopted by City Council on April 17 of this year and which is available online at www.troyohio.gov.
