Akron is getting $127,000 to plan for a grid of bicycle lanes throughout the city.
The city says the Knight Foundation grant will help make Akron more bike-friendly with a plan for connecting neighborhoods, the downtown business district and the Towpath Trail with bike lanes. The funds will go toward hiring Copenhagenize Design Company and 8 80 Cities to consult on how, when, and where to implement the bike lanes.
