City of Ann Arbor, Michigan celebrates opening of first two-way protected bike lane (Just in time for Winter) (War on Cars Watch)

The William Street Bikeway is the first in a network of planned two-way protected bike lanes across the city. The next bikeway will be constructed on First Street in 2020 with a greater plan of connecting the downtown area to the Huron River, where further development is planned.

City officials hope this will encourage more people to ride their bikes downtown as congestion continues to be an issue in the area.
