Isn't much, but something cool in Lawton. New bike routes across the city.


LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Lawton has unveiled multiple bicycle routes just in time for summer. This is a project ten years in the making.

Nine bicycle routes and paths now span the city, helping to connect people to recreation, civic facilities and commercial areas while also encouraging healthy physical activity.

City officials say the planning process took time, as they worked to develop a master plan by looking at the entire community to find out where corridors were needed in order to link bicycle routes to pedestrian trails.

Lawton city planner Richard Rogalski said the new routes and paths are great for residents and the future of the city.

"Better health, better livability, those are the things, they all just make us feel better and it's economic development because there are things that people expect in a community. If they are looking to move professionals to the community, there are things they want to see, they want to see in the community and trails and routes are one of them," Rogalski said.

Great addition for Lawton, this is much needed for the area. Always thought Lawton was unique city, as it is the largest stand alone city in Oklahoma outside of Tulsa & OKC metros.
