In order to provide the pavement width that is necessary to include bike lanes, the travel lanes would be reduced from 12 to 11 feet wide and parking would be eliminated from the north side of the road.

RMA-PW staff recommends approval of the proposed no parking zone allowing for the bike lanes to be installed.
