City of Charleston officials have been flirting with the idea of converting one of the two one-way traffic lanes around Hampton Park into a designated biking and walking lane.
However, the idea was passed on during a May council meeting after some of city council became concerned over provisions for pedestrians in the plans.
The petition reads:
Support a Bike Lane in Hampton Park on Mary Murray Blvd
A bike lane in Hampton Park will create connectivity among neighborhoods above the crosstown, increase safety and outlets for physical activity, and create a more sustainable Charleston.
We'll be sure to let you know of future developments regarding the bike lane, and you can follow Charleston bike news on our topic page.
