SUGAR LAND, Texas -

Soon there will be more places for pedestrians and bicyclists to enjoy in Sugar Land.

Sugar Land City Council has approved a $225,000 contract with Jerdon Enterprise, L.P. for improvements with the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan.

Several projects will be constructed this year including, buffered bike lanes on Grants Lakes Boulevard, Bayview Drive and Sugar Lakes Boulevard, shared bike lanes on Alston Road and side paths along University Boulevard that connect existing bike lanes to Telfair Avenue.

City Council approved the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan last year.  The plane identifies a future network that includes 24 miles of bike lanes, an additional 18 miles of on-street shared lanes for bicycles and 128 miles of pedestrian and bike paths
