KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A new bike corral has been installed in the 500 block of Gay Street.
The bike corral can hold ten bikes in the space of less than one parallel parking spot.
City officials hope the new addition will stop riders from locking their bikes to poles, fences, and sign posts.
“In order to address the limited bicycle parking and to help keep the sidewalk free of obstructions, we decided to install a bike corral. It benefits cyclists, pedestrians and businesses,” said Jon Livengood, Alternative Transportation Coordinator for the City of Knoxville.
The rack was paid for by a grant from the Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), so the City’s only cost was the labor to install the racks.
The first corral is located in the Old City.
