East Bay bike, running path now open

Some 3,000 feet of sidewalk from Chapel Street to the Cooper River Bridge opened yesterday.

The 12-foot wide section of sidewalk and extra lighting is designed to provide a safer conduit for bicycles and pedestrians.

The Post and Courier reports that this is a result of Mayor Joe Riley having signed a U.S. Conference of Mayors resolution to make the city more bicycle friendly.
