The city of Chattanooga announced bike lanes will not be coming to the North Shore area at this time. The city hired a transportation design firm to look at the possibility of adding bike lanes on Frazier Avenue. The firm told officials they would need to conduct a study on the traffic flow before making a decision on bike lanes. That study, called a "pilot project", would use temporary traffic cones to simulate the road conditions that installing bike lanes would create. But the city's transportation department says there are no plans for a pilot project right now. The original proposal to add bike lanes would have reduced the street from two lanes to one.
