With a ribbon-cutting ceremony this morning, city commissioners opened Lakeland’s first “cycle track,” a dedicated two-way bike path along three blocks of New York Avenue downtown. (Video by Reems Landreth)

Eventually, the New York Avenue segment is expected to connect a planned bicycle path along the west side of Lake Hunter with a bridge over the CSX tracks toward Lake Wire.

The cycle track occupies the former southbound lanes of New York Avenue, so vehicle traffic along the three blocks between Lime Street and Main Street is northbound only.

Here is our Facebook live broadcast of the entire ceremony:
