In 2011, City leaders adopted a Complete Streets
resolution to encourage the creation of a transportation system that would serve all modes and all users. In May 2013, the City Commission approved the Bikeway Network Master Map
showing a system of on-street and off-street bicycle infrastructure.
Plymouth was cape sealed in summer 2015. Cape sealing places a new surface over existing asphalt to preserve the street.
When cape sealing occurs, the pavement markings must be reapplied, making it an ideal time to install bike lanes. Bike lanes were painted on Plymouth after the cape sealing work. As a result, parking was removed on the east side of the street. Please be aware that City ordinance prohibits parking in a bike lane. The new cross section is a continuation of the one implemented on Plymouth from Burton to Boston and features a parking lane on the west side of the street, a five foot southbound bike lane, two vehicle travel lanes, and a five foot northbound bike lane.
Plymouth is identified on the Bikeway Network Master Map as an important north-south corridor. The bike network now connects people riding bikes with neighboring cities and regional trails.
