CEDAR RAPIDS (AP) -- A group of Linn County bicyclists are seeking wider shoulders on rural roads near Cedar Rapids as well as signs asking motorists to share the road.
County supervisors say they likely can't afford the cost of widening roads, roughly $130,000 a mile for a 4-foot shoulder. But they were supportive of the signs, which would be paid for by the Hawkeye Bicycle Association.
The group sought the changes, noting the health benefits of increasing bicycle commuting.
Supervisor Linda Langston says officials will work with the group on where to erect the share-the-road signs.
