LANCASTER — The Lancaster City Council unanimously supported the designation of the proposed U.S. Bicycle Route 85 through the City but with design modifications to make it safer for bicyclists.

The proposed route is part of a national effort by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials to develop a network of public bicycle travel routes known as the U.S. Bicycle Route System. The goal is to facilitate bicycle travel on appropriate roads, paths and highways over routes that are desirable for interstate bicyclists, according to the association’s website.
