As part of Moving New Orleans Bikes, the City is currently building 75 miles of connected, low-stress bikeway networks across Orleans Parish. These Complete Streets improvements, including parking-protected bikeways and bike/walk-friendly boulevards, will create more safety and less stress for everyone on the road - people walking, biking, driving and riding transit. Construction for Moving New Orleans Bikes in the 7th Ward, Tremé, Mid-City & Gentilly is currently underway!
By the end of the year, because of Moving New Orleans Bikes, residents of every age and skill level will be able to enjoy safe, low-stress rides between these historic neighborhoods, as well as to jobs and destinations downtown. Every resident in the 7th Ward, Tremé, Mid-City & Gentilly will have new low-stress commuting options by bike from their home to a job in the CBD or French Quarter, all on protected bikeways and bike/walk-friendly boulevards.
