Bike path project moves forward in Charleston

Posted: Updated:

People will soon be able to peddle through downtown Charleston.

City council members approved a resolution Tuesday evening that allows Charleston to enter a contract with an engineering firm to design a bike path.

The path would run both directions on Kanawha Boulevard, starting at Magic Island and continuing to Patrick Street.

Per the plan, traffic will still be able to flow in all four lanes. Most of the street parking will remain the same, but the median will be removed.

City officials said they hope to see construction begin in five to six months if approved.
