Rails to Trails in Oklahoma


 How would you like to see bike trails built over abandoned railway lines? The state of Missouri has been successful in converting over 300 miles of rail lines to bike trails, resulting in a great influx of tourism dollars. Oklahoma's laws need some work to facilitate converting rails to trails. Click HERE  for details on what is being done, and how you can get involved.  


Bike Bridge over Northwest Highway


   OBS leaders attended a meeting on Wed. Jan 5th, 2017 with OKC City planners to provide input on plans to build a bike / pedestrian bridge over Northwest Highway at Wilshire. This is where the lake to lake trail goes, and is by the Firehouse Subs and OnCue gas station. 
Funding for this bridge was approved by OKC citizens in 2007, and finally 10 years later we are starting to see some possible movement to get it built.

Also discussed was the problems with the bike trail on McArthur between Wilshire and Britton. There are too many stops, and dangerous car turning across that trail. A couple of alternatives were discussed; Follow the neighborhood streets, and the other was the installation of a stop light on McArthur at Canal Road ( just north of Whataburger and Jimmy's Egg) that would be just for bikes and walkers.

 
Watch here for updates and progress for this city project.

Metro OKC Bike Maps are available



OBS has worked with map experts at ACOG to design a two sided, 11" X 17" color cycling map for OKC, Edmond, and Norman. 5000 copies of the map were printed and are now available to be picked up at local bike shops, as well as at the bike bulletin boards at Lake Hefner and the Oklahoma River. The map includes a listing of local bike shops, safety info, and a list of the weekly rides. A detailed map of the OBS Donut ride is provided.   I hope you will enjoy the bike maps.
An electronic version is available HERE

Under Construction: Will Rogers Trail

 

 
 The new Will Rogers Trail is currently under construction and is expected to be opened late 2017. Click HERE  For details and maps.




Which Bike Trails would you like to have built?

 

In September 2017, citizens of OKC will vote on the approval of a General Obligation ( G.O. ) Bond. This occurs every ten years or so, and the money is used to fund various city projects, including building bike trails and bike lanes.

Each city councilperson will be holding a citizen input meeting in their district. This will occur in Jan. and Feb. 2017.
 
Click HERE  for the dates and locations of the meetings, as well as a few ideas for bike projects.


New Trail Planned for OKC

 
 
OKC has indicated plans to start design in 2017 for extending the OKC river trail east one mile.
This will run next to the uncompleted American Indian Cultural Center, and connect the OKC river trail to the newly built Eagle Lake trail at SE 4th and Eastern.
 
Completion of the trail is said to be in 2018. This section of trail will be an important piece in connecting all of the trails in OKC.
 
If you are not familiar with the Eagle Lake Trail, don't feel bad, it was opened a couple of years ago with no announcement. For more info on the Eagle Lake Trail - Click HERE
