After a brief suspension, the Department of Transportation is again offering free bike racks to interested property owners. The bike rack program was rejunvenated after updating the existing inventory of DOT racks and receiving a generous donation of racks from the Department of Recreation and Parks.
Big thanks go to Anne Draddy & Charlie Murphy at Rec & Parks and Nelson Jackson at DOT for making this happen!
Bike racks can be installed on hard surfaces, preferably concrete sidewalks. Under some circumstances, racks may be installed in brick surfaces. A site evaluation will needed to determine if installation is feasible. Each rack can park at least 2 bikes and 3 or 4 if you’re ambitious. Racks are powder coated for weather resistance and limit dings to bikes.
The type of racks being offered are DOT’s standard “Downtown” rack and the “Hitch” Rack (See below).
If you want a rack or know a good spot for one, send me an email at email@example.com
