CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOX) – The St. Louis County Council is holding off on a vote on the Complete Streets initiative. The measure would require all new road projects to consider adding a bike lane or sidewalks.
Previously, the highway department raised concerns, estimating the plan could cost the county a hundred million dollars.
Bill sponsor Councilman Pat Dolan said that number is inflated because it assumes every single new project would incorporate those elements.
“It will be on street-by-street, case-by-case basis. Where ever it makes sense to put a bike path or sidewalk in that’s what we’ll do,” he told KMOX.
The bill could have final passage as early as next week.
