As part of a regional alliance, the North Central Texas Council of Governments, the Texas Department of Transportation and the City of Irving are developing a citywide bicycle plan. Community feedback will be an integral part of this plan, and opportunities to comment will be available through public meetings and comment periods. The Irving Bike Plan project is expected to take 12 months to complete.
The Irving Bike Plan’s goal is to identify a comprehensive on-street network for bicycle travel, featuring inclusive facilities for all ages and abilities and establish planned connections to surrounding cities. Components of the plan include designating priority corridors and determining ways to provide safe bicycle travel from existing facilities and trails to additional areas of the city.
Community input will be critical to develop a plan that connects employment, educational institutions, entertainment and recreation areas, transit stops and stations, and shopping areas to Irving’s neighborhoods, as well as surrounding communities.
A public input meeting is scheduled June 7 at 6 p.m. at Irving City Hall, 825 W. Irving Blvd., in the First Floor Council Conference Room.
