The proposed budget includes more than $624,000 for building safety barriers along Rhode Island Avenue’s bike lanes and $45,000 for a study to evaluate the impact of adding one-way streets and bike lanes in Old Town.
The goal is to study feasibility and determine other productive locations for bike lanes around the campus.
