U of I to Update Its Award Winning Network of Bike Lanes

The University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana is the only university campus in Illinois that is recognized by the League of American Bicyclists as a bike friendly campus. Even with this great distinction, the University of Illinois is not content with just maintaining the status quo. The University of Illinois has recently revealed its plans to update its network of bike lanes to integrate with the cities of Champaign and Urbana. Both Champaign and Urbana are both in the midst of updating their respective bike initiatives. Termed the 2013 Campus Bike Plan, the University of Illinois estimates that the cost of improving the biking infrastructure on campus will be roughly $4 million.

The University of Illinois has reached out to the student population to survey the opinions, queries, and issues voiced by the growing number of cyclists. The Facilities and Services department is spearheading the planned changes and although the funding for the project is still unknown, the Illinois Bicycle Lawyers at Keating Law Offices are optimistic that improvements to the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana's biking infrastructure will be implemented in the very near future.
