CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - The Complete Streets initiative in St. Louis County could be approved next week, more than two months after it first came before the County Council.

Complete Streets is a nationwide effort aimed at expanding bicycle and pedestrian access on existing roadways. It has been adopted by 600 communities across the country, including St. Louis city and the St. Louis County towns of Clayton and Ferguson.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1eSzxu6 ) reports that St. Louis County approval was delayed by opponents who claim that the addition of bike lanes is costly and unnecessary.

Still, the bill could be approved when the council reconvenes next week.
