The White House released its much anticipated infrastructure plan on February 12. The proposal to invest $1.5 trillion over 10 years is eye-catching and shines a sorely needed spotlight on the need to invest in the nation’s roadways, railways and waterways.

The regional bike share project aims to give residents, employees, students, and visitors alike another option to get around for fun, work, or exercise. The project is currently in the process of identifying hub locations for the designated bike racks.
The community is invited to review the potential hub locations as well as suggest new ones through an interactive online map.
