Rodney Parham bike lanes a meeting topic

Little Rock officials have set a meeting next week to gather public input on plans to add bike lanes on Rodney Parham Road and to build a two-lane traffic circle at Pleasant Valley and Arkansas Valley drives.

On Rodney Parham, plans call for constructing bike lanes from Valley Club Circle north to Cantrell Road, city officials said.

In addition to building the traffic circle, city engineers plan to improve the drainage system at Pleasant Valley along the east side of Kingsbridge Way, officials said.

Representatives from the Little Rock Public Works Civil Engineering Division and the project engineer will be at the meeting, set for 5:30 p.m. Monday at the Adolphine Fletcher Terry Library, 2015 Napa Valley Drive, to discuss the projects and accept public input.

Yes, by all means, keep taking away traffic lanes and adding bicycle lanes for both the bicycle riders in LR.

Need some more input, maybe you should address the murder and strong arm robbery rate in LR??? Just a thought.

Rock City Times said there was an open season on bike riders; if it's still open I don't think I would be adding victims. On a serious note if I lived near there no way would I want to ride a bike on that part of Rodney Parham

When I was a young child, I remember taking car rides out on beautiful Rodney Parham which had many green pastures and grazing horses.

I also agree with Levy Rat. The highest priority should be to beef up social services and take all young children out of unfit homes. Recreational facilities and after school programs need to be beefed up. With respect to all the young hoodlums coming from the Little Rock School District, couldn't the guidance counselors at these schools see this coming from some of these delinquents?

The bike lanes on 12th and Main street were terrible ideas. They could have built basketball courts that the kids would actually use. Populist I agree that more should be put into recreational activities. I also think our local libraries should have tutors for the kids that are trying to learn. Drug tests, mental evaluation and parenting class should be mandatory for public assistance. There are a lot of people in the hood fighting depression and have basically given up.

When I was in Jr & Sr High, guidance counselors at these schools did nothing but help fill out college entry forms...if you could get an appointment. When did they start actually councelling & listening to students on troubling topics ?

The bike lanes are a great idea if you want people to seriously consider cycling as a way to commute to work, go to the store, etc.

It appears they're trying to get riders safely from the neighborhoods around Hinson and Pleasant Valley over to River Mountain Road, which then opens up the river trail and Pinnacle trails.
