City traffic engineer Frank Payne just stated that the demolition of the Avenue C cycletrack is officially put on hold. He says that they’ve discussed the project with UNT, and UNT has agreed to hold off on demolition pending additional research by city staff regarding right-of-way and permitting issues.

“Major projects inclue:
– Improving the bike path along Avenue C to create better north south mobility and to start the transition to a pedestrian/bicycle mall as recommended in the Campus Master Plan”
