More bike lanes in La Crosse? We go over the bike-ped master plan with the city’s Jenna Dinkel

Bike lanes, sharrows, bump outs and greenways are just some of the terms we hit on during Tuesday’s La Crosse Talk PM in discussing moving people around traffic with the city of La Crosse’s associate planner Jenna Dinkel.

There is one more public meeting Monday on the city’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan and Dinkel stops in the WIZM studio to go over some of its ins and outs, plus a look at the Wagon Wheel Trail and what the Wisconsin DOT has in store for Highways 35, 53 and 16. 

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

The city’s bike-ped plan is a major revision from its 2012 counterpart, and we talk about some of the decade-old ideas that are now obsolete — like “sharrows.”

The city’s final public meeting on the master plan draft from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Monday in the auditorium at the La Crosse Main Street Library, with a presentation held at 5:30 p.m. There is also a quick survey online looking for feedback until June 3, as well.

We also dived into details on the Wagon Wheel Trail (26:35) and how La Crosse is catching up to La Crescent in completing that project. And, we hit on some Wisconsin DOT upcoming public meetings (29:00) on those three highways mentioned above.
