Pima County is working toward adding bikes lanes on a popular section of Anklam Road.
The county’s bicycle and pedestrian manager said the they are working to add bike lanes just west of Player’s Club Drive to Speedway Boulevard.
The project would add about 1.6 miles in both directions.
Zoll said in the future he also hoped to add bike lanes on Speedway to connect to the city’s bike lanes that were added east of Greasewood, but the Anklam Road project is much close to reality.
Tucson cyclist Steve Wilson said traffic on Anklam is generally pretty light, but that it would be a nice addition to the area.
What’s not likely is adding bike lanes west to Gate’s pass.
“Gates Pass would be insanely expensive to do,” Zoll said. “I don’t know if we’ll see that one in or lifetimes.”
