GRAND RAPIDS, MI — City leaders hope to spend tens of thousands of dollars in coming years to beef up Grand Rapids' bike lane network, and aim to have 100 miles by 2017, according to city budget documents unveiled Tuesday.
The plan, detailed in budget documents, would spend $71,100 in the fiscal year set to begin Oct. 1 on 26 additional miles of bike lanes.
City Manager Greg Sundstrom said that would boost the current 7-mile network to 33 within the next year, if the city commission ultimately approves the plan in coming months.
