There seems to be a lot of misinformation out there about decisions regarding the Upper Afton bike lanes to be added this summer... THERE HAS NOT BEEN A FINAL DECISION MADE YET ABOUT THE PARKING RESTRICTIONS!! Unfortunately, the County has posted signs to say they are beginning work soon - this work is NOT the bike lanes, but preliminary work on the street. The County did not inform ANYBODY that they would be putting up these signs... They will start with fixing curbs and the pedestrian ramps at intersections to make them legal and safe. They will then remove the top layer of the street prior to repaving it. BEFORE anything happens regarding the bike lanes, residents along the street will receive NOTICE IN THE MAIL from the City about a public hearing. This hearing HAS NOT BEEN SET YET, but will be in May. Nothing has been finalized about parking yet.
