The Master Plan for bicycle and pedestrian lanes in the City of Cape Coral is finally moving forward!

Once its final version is approved by the Cape Coral City Council, staff will move to implement its Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan over the next 20 years, at least. The plan was presented Monday at Council’s special workshop meeting at City Hall. The plan, a product of many months of research and study, sets a course to create some 250 new miles of sidewalks, separate bike paths and multi-use paths. Implementation is estimated to cost $72.4 million over 20 years.

The goal is to increase the number of people walking and biking while decreasing the number of crashes along mostly major roadways. Safety projects include signal enhancements at major intersections and adding crosswalks!
