Cornelius recently voted to approve the new Bike!Cornelius Master Plan, which calls for a vast expansion of bike lanes and educational programs and events throughout the area.
Currently Cornelius has about 2 miles of on-street bike paths and 6 miles of greenways and cross-through trails. The new Bike!Cornelius plan will expand those numbers to include over 97.4 miles of paths and trails.
It specifically calls for 12 major projects, including five immediate bike paths added on West Catawba, Washam Potts, Westmoreland, Nantz, Hwy 115, Torrence Chapel, and Hwy 21.
