City seeks public input on bike, trail systems

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – More people are riding their bikes these days across Albuquerque.

And the city wants to know what improvements are needed to the bikeways and trail system.

They will be holding public meetings this week to get public input.

Officials say the city’s bike and trail system is 20 years old and is in need of upgrades.

Some of the ideas floating around include connecting more trails and bike lanes across the city and improving safety by adding signals that would stop traffic and give bicyclists the right of way.

Another idea?

Adding more trails.

The ideas will have to be approved by the city council.

They will then be added to a federal plan to obtain funding for the improvements.
