TPA-Funded Project Under Construction:
Delray Beach Shared Use Path
Check out the construction progress of a TPA-funded shared use path in Delray Beach! The funds for this project cover installation of bicycle lanes and pedestrian facilities on Lowson Blvd/SW 10th St. from Dover Rd. to SE 5th Ave. Crews continue framing up and pouring the new concrete for the shared-use path along the north side of Lowson Blvd. The project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2023. This project is funded from our Local Initiatives (LI) program, an annual application process to identify and fund Complete Street projects identified by local agency partners on local federal-aid eligible roadways. 
National Bicycle Month
May is National Bike Month, promoted by the League of American Bicyclists and celebrated in communities from coast to coast. Established in 1956, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling — and encourage more folks to give biking a try. In 2022, we celebrate ways to #BikeThere during National Bike Month and National Ride A Bike Day on May 1, 2022. Gather your friends, family and coworkers and join the national challenge.
