(Atlantic) Atlantic City Administrator Doug Harris is meeting with the Iowa DOT next week to iron out the details on the bike lane construction project on a stretch of Highway 83 in Atlantic.
Harris says the design consists of 6-foot bike lanes and a 12-foot center turn lane. Harris say they will also discuss who is going to pay for the $700.00 for signage and striping.
In June the Atlantic City Council approved a proposal to convert a stretch of 2nd Street from four lanes to three from Buck Creek Road to Chestnut Street.
Proponents of the bike lane want to provide a connection for bicyclists between downtown Atlantic and the Schildberg Recreational Area.
