Consider This: Safer streets for bikes and pedestrians

Posted: Updated:

Myrtle Beach is beginning the process to improve the safety for bicycles and pedestrians.

Consider This:

The Myrtle Beach Bike & Pedestrian Safety sub-committee is looking at ways to fix bike paths, sidewalks, and address other traffic concerns. Although it might take years to see much progress, at least the process is beginning.

The first step is an updated city map. The last city street map was done in the 1980s and more than 20 miles of sidewalks have been added since then.

The number of people walking, running and cycling has also increased significantly and will continue to grow. It's wise for the city to start this process now to prepare for the future. Hopefully, with a need that is becoming more and more important, improvements can begin sooner than currently planned.
