A recent article in the Palm Beach SunSentinel describes how the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is approaching the U. S. 1 Bike Route that extends all the way from the Georgia border to Key West. Here are a couple of excerpts from the article.
"The U.S. 1 bike route likely will be a mix of low-traffic roads and some busy urban sections. U.S. 1 mainly acts as a baseline for the proposed route, which will diverge from the road to county- or city-maintained streets and trails that can better accommodate cyclists.
So parts of State Road A1A could be part of the route. So could the East Coast Greenway, a mainly off-road system of trails stretching from Maine to Key West."
"Bret Baronak, Palm Beach County's bicycle and pedestrian coordinator, said FDOT recently has been installing quite a few bike lanes on U.S. 1.
"Anything that results in roads being upgraded to better accommodate bikes, I'm all for it," he said."
