    I spoke to the Round Lake Public Works dept a few months ago and they told me that there were not going to be any bike lanes. Now I see this graphic that suggests there will be. Is this certain? Will they run all the way from Hainesville to Cedar Lake?

      Bryan, I know that they were “proposing” bike lanes from the very beginning but hadn’t heard that they were now planning on skipping them. I grabbed the graphic from the Counties site mainly to show how the middle lane would be used as a turn lane. Without measuring the width I don’t know if it ended up being only 33′ wide or if it actually is 41′ wide with plenty of room for a bike lanes. The next time I’m over there I will drag my tape across the road and see just how wide they ended up making it. Bike enthusiasts are sure to be very disappointed if the lanes have been scrapped.
