Q. I noticed what appear to be new bike lanes on Oakland Ave. from Shorewood to about Locust St. However, these new side lanes aren't labeled or very continuous. Could you tell me what the plan is?A. The plan is to finish those lanes - which weren't competed last week - as part of the biggest expansion of bicycle lanes in Milwaukee history, says Mike Loughran, chief planning and development engineer for the city Department of Public Works.By the end of this summer, the city will have added 25 miles of bike lanes, more than doubling the 15 miles previously in place, Loughran said. Most of that expansion, 23 miles, is included in a $100,000 project that is 80% funded by the federal government, guided by recommendations developed by the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin, he said.
