Severalarticleshaveappeared lately about the walking and biking lanes that are to be installed on the Harahan Bridge (which I’ve just discovered has its own Facebook page – who knew?) in the near future. Â I am so excited about being able to bike to Arkansas – and eventually to New Orleans – I can hardly stand it.
There’s a meeting Wednesday, 2 March at 5:30 PM at the Church Health Center on Union Avenue about the plans for pedestrian and biking infrastructure in the area. Â Kyle Wagenschutz and other folks from the Memphis MPO will be soliciting input from the public about what sort of facilities we want. Â I’ll be there and I hope you will be too.
