Aiken Commissioners Vote Against Bike Lane


Aiken locals are having a tough time sharing the road.

Tuesday Aiken City Commissioners voted against the request for a bike lane on Silver Bluff Road.

Some wanted to put in sparrows along the road, which are dashed lines symbolizing bike lanes.

Many people who live in the area don’t want it because they say the road is unsafe and they don’t want to worry about possibly hitting people. 

The road considered for a bike lane, stretches a mile long and doesn’t connect to any trails or other bike lanes.

The planning commission voted the sparrows down. A few years back, some tried for actual bike lanes and those were turned down too.
