Funding for a bike lane project got a unanimous vote from the San Antonio City Council on Thursday, though it had split sentiment.
The $6 million in Midtown Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone money that the City Council voted to authorize will pay for protected bike lanes on portions of Avenue B and Alamo Street. It’s not a standalone project, though.
“Everybody believes we should have protected bike lanes on Avenue B and Alamo. So that’s really not in question,” said District 5 Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales from the dais. “The question was always the bike lanes on Broadway.”
