Last week the Mayor’s office announced plans to add shared use and bicycle-only lanes on Leavenworth Street from 31st street to 13th street. This one-way section of Leavenworth will improve east-west connectivity for bicyclists and help create a link between midtown and downtown.
The city plans various lane and parking restrictions along this corridor starting Friday, July 27th and ending Sunday, July 29th. By Monday, July 30th, we should have some fancy new bike infrastructure to ride on. This comes less than one week after the July 25th ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of phase 1 of the new South Omaha Trail, another east-west connector between Karen Park and the Field Club Trail.
