A plan to add bicycle and pedestrian lanes to Atlantic City’s streets are moving along but still have some way to go after a first presentation to City Council this week.

Beginning early last year, Department of Transportation has been working with city officials and residents through the DOT’s Local Technical Assistance program to find out the issues of biking and walking in the city and what can be done.

“‘Our next step is to complete a draft of the final plan outlining our study’s findings and recommendations,” said Denise Chaplickcq, DOT consultant with the Michael Baker Jr. Corp. “The final plan will include proposed recommendations to improve conditions for biking and walking.”

There will also be engineering, education, enforcement and evaluation components for the city to consider, she said.

City Planning Director Keith Mills CQ could not be immediately reached for comment on specifics of the plan.
