Mill Creek City Council considering adding bike friendly striping to streets

The Mill Creek City Council is considering a project to re-stripe a number of collector streets to be more bike friendly. This bike lane project is estimated to cost $25,000 to $50,000.

The City of Mill Creek has received a number of requests over the years to provide additional bike lanes on city streets, especially along “the loop” of Village Green Drive and Mill Creek Boulevard. Because of budget constraints, this road project has not had a high enough priority to get funded.

At the request of a number of city councilmembers, Tom Gathmann, Mill Creek Public Works Director, presented a number of bike friendly road striping options at the March 11, 2014, city council meeting.
