Bicycle Safety Improvements Are Underway at Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech is in the middle of improving its bicycle infrastructure and bicycle conditions on and around campus. These changes are being implemented by the Bicycle Infrastructure Improvement Committee (BIIC), which is made up of students and staff.

The BIIC was created because there has not been a group of individuals focusing on bicycle-related improvements on campus. Although the committee formed plans to improve bicycle safety back in January, these plans are just now being implemented to make it easier for cyclists to bike to school.

Some students bike to school out of necessity, while others ride their bikes around campus for their health and enjoyment. Whatever the case, the Georgia Tech community is making improvements that Atlanta cyclists can enjoy.

Additional bike racks are being added to the areas around the College of Management, the Instructional Center, and the Ford Environmental Science and Technology building. In addition, several bike lanes are being added to Hemphill Avenue and Ferst Drive in the hopes of decreasingAtlanta bicycle accidents and improving bicycle safety.

The group's goal is to have these bicycle safety improvements completed by the start of the fall semester.

The BIIC has been hosting cycling classes with the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, and even supported the recently passed House Bill 101. Ultimately, the group hopes to make bicycling in and around the Atlanta campus a much safer experience.

Kalka & Baer would like to congratulate the BIIC on its Atlanta bicycling safety efforts.
