Eight projects to improve bike travel in Wichita will go before the Wichita City Council on Tuesday.
Designs for the projects, carrying about $530,000 in design costs, were approved Aug. 6 by the City Council.
Funding comes from the city’s $279,469 community transportation grant from the Greater Wichita YMCA Health and Wellness Coalition, and from about $500,000 in general obligation bond funding in the 2013 capital improvements plan for bike projects.
The city has $500,000 in funding every two years for such projects built into its 10-year capital improvements plan. The next funding would be available in 2015.
