CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland is planning to add more than 70 miles of dedicated bike lanes, trails and pavement markings by the end of 2017.

The city’s sustainability chief tells The Plain Dealer (https://bit.ly/1aFAyD7) the transportation upgrade aims to link every neighborhood in the city to the bikeway network.

Planned additions to the network were announced Sunday at the advocacy group Bike Cleveland’s annual meeting.

The plan calls for more than doubling the amount of bike-friendly routes in the city, with almost 45 miles of new bikeways over the next two years and another nearly 26 miles in the two years after that.

Cleveland currently has about 48 miles of bikeways. That includes 4 miles of shared roadways, 10 miles of dedicated bike lanes, and 35 miles of trails separated from the road.
