Regional Bike Plan draft available for review, comment
High Country Council of Governments recently contracted with the N.C. Department of Transportation to develop a Regional Bike Plan for the seven-county High Country. The plan is intended to improve safety, access and mobility for cyclists by designating logical routes that connect municipalities and other major destinations in the region.
The plan identifies needed improvements to existing roadways and establishes seven Recreational Cycling Routes. The draft includes details on how the plan was developed and contains maps of recommendations.
