A thread dedicated to discussions on Orlando and Central Florida trails and bicycle infrastructure.
The Cady Way Trail stops at the entrance to Lake Druid Park as it approaches Downtown. If it was just extended to the cul-de-sac of Laura Pl, then it would connect to the Bumby Trail by a small local road, which is a perfect compromise instead of an actual trail.
Trail on the right and Laura Pl on the left.
There is a new ARB Report out on the Colonial Pedestrian Overpass Bridge with renderings and final approval of the lighting plan. http://www.cityoforlando.net/city-planning/wp-content/uploads/sites/27/2017/03/ARB2016-00070report.pdf
Report says project is scheduled to commence construction First Quarter of 2017. I can confirm that work has started with site clearing and pile driving. Crews flagged the area and removed multiple trees in the right of way for the project next to SteelHouse this month. I expect sitework to begin and we may see vertical construction soon. I will keep updates going as the project progresses, as I live in Steelhouse. Renderings below.

Looks pretty cool. I just hope they can vary the colors on that Pylon and Ramp.
Thought a thread for bicycle-related infrastructural and program developments seemed appropriate. Post any news related cycling in Richmond. Also, feel free to share any articles that were previously shared in broader threads here on bicycles.
Just resharing the article on the bike-share program coming to Richmond because I came across another curious article (see 2nd link) on how Milwaukee's bike-share program teamed up with their Housing Authority in order to ensure accessibility to lower- and low income neighborhoods.
U-P once had a thread on this topic. The last reply was in 2007.
Drove by yesterday and took a look at this park. Very impressive. Kudos to Spartanburg and Cherokee Counties (the park straddles the county line) for teaming up on this one. The big Dollar Tree distribution center dominates the park. There's plenty of land for expansion but I worry about access to I-85.
