Add bikes to expansion

I was glad to read the June 14 article, Krome Avenue will receive a makeover after repeated crashes, deaths. Finally there will be some expansion done on Krome Avenue. For years the deaths on this avenue have weighed heavily on me as I used to live near Krome and used it to get to Homestead and the Everglades.

I was distressed, however, that the plans to expand do not mention bike paths. This is the best time to add a few feet and some paint on the sides of the new road so bicyclists can be safer.

Think of how many drivers would prefer to visit the Everglades on bicycles. Our legislators must include bike paths on all new road plans, for all our sakes, including drivers.
