The city of Brentwood is inviting members of the public to attend an informational meeting on Feb. 20 to discuss bike lanes options for the soon-to-be repaved section of Granny White Pike between Foxland Drive and Brentwood Academy.



“Given the heavy pedestrian use of the existing sidewalk, bike lanes would allow cyclists safer access to the schools, parks, and commercial areas along or adjacent to this corridor,” City Manager Kirk Bednar said in a release.



With the city scheduled to repave the road later this year, the Ad Hoc Bike and Pedestrian Committee recommended the addition of bike lanes, leading the city to hire engineering firm Kimley Horn to study the feasibility of bike lanes in the area.



The firm presented three potential options to the city commission, which include buffered 3-foot bike lanes with 11-foot lanes of traffic, non-buffered 4-foot bike lanes with 10-foot lanes of traffic, and the absence of bike lanes altogether.



The public information meeting will be informal and allow community members to come and go and speak to city staff. It will be held from 6-8 p.m. in the second-floor annex room at Brentwood City Hall at 5211 Maryland Way.



If residents are unable to attend the meeting, they are encouraged by the city to email staff at info@brentwoodtn.gov to voice their opinions on the proposed project.
