Bike racks installed around FXBG
Downtown Fredericksburg got even more welcoming to bicyclists and pedestrians this month with the completion of a project spearheaded by Fredericksburg VA Main Street Inc. (FVMS).
Fredericksburg Public Works crews this month completed the installation of 15 bike racks, one bike corral (near the intersection of Charles and William streets), two benches, multiple trash cans and planters, and two bike-repair stations (Riverfront Park and Hurkamp Park) around downtown Fredericksburg.
Two bike shelters will be installed near the train station once some construction upgrades to the area are completed.
Main Street has been working on the Downtown Streetscape Project for several years. The organization raised money privately and from a Virginia grant program to fund the project. It then purchased the items and provided a list of locations to the City, which handed the installation.
“FVMS is happy to provide the city with this new resource,” said April Peterson, past president of the downtown-focused organization. “This Downtown Streetscape Project continues our joint efforts to enhance the quality of life for our residents, economic vitality of our commercial district, and sustainability initiatives.”
Thanks to Main Street for this great addition to our City!
