Goshen to improve roads and sidewalks in an effort to encourage public health and safety
GOSHEN, Ind. - The city of Goshen is holding a public meeting to discuss the Lincoln Avenue Cycle track project later. The initiative aims to inspire more activity and accessibility in the area.
Goshen is recognized regionally and nationally by the league of American Bicyclists. In fact, it is 1 of 482 communities noted for their improvements for safer streets and better cycling. Now, the trend will continue. The city is planning to create more complete streets along Lincoln avenue. The goal is to provide space for people, bikes, cars, transit, shared mobility, recreation and refuge which includes trees and other vegetation.
Additionally, it will provide a connection between the Indiana multi-use path, Millrace Trail, Maple City Greenway, and Pumpkinvine trail. The Goshen Engineering Department explains this is ultimately an effort to increase safety and public health, and encourage equitable and inclusive economic development.
You can attend the meeting for further information on Thursday, June 3rd at 6 in the evening at the Goshen City Annex Building off of Jefferson Street.
