City of Orlando Hosts Virtual Public Meeting to Gain Feedback as part of the Southwest Orlando Bike and Pedestrian Study
On Tuesday, December 14, at 5:30 p.m., the City of Orlando will host a virtual public meeting, on the Southwest Orlando Bike and Pedestrian Study.
Community members are invited to learn about efforts to improve safety in the community through improved walking conditions, trails, and overpasses. Following the presentation, attendees can share thoughts and feedback through an online survey.
The goal of the study is to create a safer and better-connected system for bicyclists and pedestrians in the Southwest Orlando community. The study is expected to be complete in the summer of 2022.
The study area is bounded by State Road 408 to the north, John Young Parkway to the east, Sand Lake Road to the south and Hiawassee Road to the west, within city limits.

BIKING IN ORLANDO BACKGROUND:
Since 2003, Mayor Dyer has helped transform Orlando’s urban environment by investing in bike amenities, including the bike share program, bike repair stations, green bike lanes, trail crossings, and improving connectivity through projects such as the Downtown Loop and Orlando Bicycle Plan Update.
Today Orlando, a Bronze-Level Bicycle Friendly Community, is home to more than 360 miles of off-street trails, signed routes and bicycle lanes.
