TxDOT and Tyler MPO are making plans for FM 2493 south of Tyler, and they need your input.
The planned construction includes widening the road and adding sidewalks, but does not include any provision for bicycles.
Spread the word – share the following petition link by email and social media:
Please attend the public meeting on Tuesday, December 10, to let TxDOT and your MPO know that you want bicycle infrastructure when the road is reconstructed.
Please remind TxDOT:
- You are a cyclist and you want safe roads in your area
- TxDOT’s own policies call for all road users to be considered in road designs
- Planning for bicycles and pedestrians from the beginning of a project saves money and resources over trying to retrofit the road later to accommodate all users
- Including provisions for all users can save the community the tragedy a non-motorist death due to a badly planned road
The meeting is on Tuesday, December 10 from 5-7 PM at Southside Baptist Church (map). You can also submit comments through TxDOT’s email system, but be aware that you can only use 250 characters in their comment box.
