Caress Law Group’s Indiana bicycle lawyers are always excited to announce new developments that improve bicycle access in Indiana. It was not that long ago when newsworthy information regarding updates to Indiana’s bicycle infrastructure was extremely rare; however, times have changed, and we applaud the City of Carmel for the continuous bike-friendly improvements that it continues to announce.
The City of Carmel has unveiled the beginning stages of an area they plan to call “Monon Boulevard.” The main aspect of this Monon Boulevard that will be of interest to bicyclists is an expansion of the Monon Trail that will occur along this area on both sides between Main Street and City Center Drive in Carmel. This area will provide bike lanes on both sides as well as separate areas for those wishing to run, walk, or jog. Additionally, this are promises scenic landscaping, which always makes a bike ride more enjoyable. Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard notes that this area was once an old industrial area, but the expansion of the Monon Trail here will give the area a fresh development in an already modernized area.
The Indianapolis bicycle accident attorneys at Caress Law Group believe this expansion of the Monon Boulevard will be beneficial to the community. We have seen a number of cyclists injured as a result of other bikers and motor vehicles during the spring and summer seasons in central Indiana. While these bicycle crashes can happen anywhere, cyclists should feel safer when they are on a trail designated for use by bicyclists and pedestrians, much like the Monon Boulevard. However, we urge riders who are using these designated trails to ride within reason. Many of the bicycle wrecks we have seen are the result of bicycles colliding head-on with one another on trails and greenways. We advise you to ride at a reasonable pace and be sure to look out for others on the roadways and trail ways when riding.
