St. Louis now has 135 miles of on-street bike routes. Cyclists and public officials celebrated the completion of the latest phase of street markings and upgrades Saturday at the Cabanne Branch of the St. Louis Public Library on Union Blvd.

Over the past seven months, Great Rivers Greenway and the City of St. Louis added 40 new miles of bike routes and upgraded an additional 60 miles of routes in the city. It’s the third phase of a partnership that began in 2004.

The next phase of the Bike St. Louis project is getting started and the city and the Great Rivers Greenway are looking for public input.

An open house is taking place Thursday from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Forest Park Visitors Center.

Great Rivers Greenway’s Director of Planning Todd Antoine says the plan includes 40 miles of new on-street bicycle routes including on Grand Avenue and North Broadway.
