Fort Worth mayor wipes out hard in bike wreck

Joining former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter in the annals of history.

What started as a routine Saturday morning bicycle ride for Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price ended with a broken collar bone, a concussion and some scrapes.

Despite her injuries, Price is in good spirits and still has a sense of humor, said Jason Lamers, chief of staff for Price and the City Council.

U.S. 36 project still includes ‘commuter bikeway’

Which is awesome.

The first phase of the project — from Federal to 88th Street — includes:

• Adding an express lane in each direction of U.S. 36, where bus rapid transit and high-occupancy vehicles can travel, free of charge. Solo drivers also will be able to use the express lane by paying a toll, the cost of which will vary by the time of day.

• Reconstructing existing pavement on U.S. 36 and widening the highway to accommodate 12-foot inside and outside shoulders.

• Replacing the Wadsworth Parkway, Wadsworth Boulevard (at West 112th Avenue) and Lowell Boulevard bridges over U.S. 36.

• Installing a separate commuter bikeway along much of the corridor.
