If you aren’t already aware of this meeting, spread the word… it seems that you can either attend the meeting to comment or mail/email your comments to Lorri Pavliska. Here’s her original email and attached announcement:


Please spread the word through your bicycle connections.

This is the cyclists opportunity to voice ALL concern for the cycling community. For instance, a roadway they would like bicycle accommodations improved, sweeping/cleaning, signage, and any other concerns/complaints on state roadways concerning cyclist.

The meeting is set-up as a hearing, so their will be a formal presentation/reading. Prior to and after the reading, an opportunity for comments will be provided (Written, e-mail and court reporter).

That is some good information, thank you for sharing that. It is always nice to know about the new information on cycling trails and extended roads for our safety.

Great info Monica,

I'm a graduate student at UTSA. A professor and I are inquiring with the administration at UTSA to include more bike paths in and around the UTSA campus area. I have seen a map of potential bike paths they are planning but haven't seen any construction yet.

I live just a few miles from campus in Shavano and would also like to see more bike paths in the DeZavala/UTSA/Babcock area. I frequently ride in traffic to HEB and local shops for small items.

Count me in as somebody who is interested in improving the health and recreational opportunities for our community.

I really wanted to make it to the TXDOT meeting and take photos of their planning maps, but wasn't able to make it. I'm in the medical center area--also by Babcock--and I would like to see ANY bike lanes. There are quite a few people who bike around in the med center, but biking to the HEB would be pretty dangerous. If you hear any news of proposed new bike lanes for that area, keep me posted!

Sounds good, lets stay in touch.

Yeah, I've heard a lot of people would love to bike to and from work and to get groceries such as nurses and other health care professionals in the medical area.

I'd like to ride to school but UTSA blvd. is crazy.
