VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - The City of Valdosta finished up it's first bike lanes Tuesday and plans to add more in the near future.     

Bike lanes have been striped and signs have been added on Sustella Avenue in front of the Valdosta State University Student Recreation Center.     

The lanes stretch between Mary Street and Baytree Road. City Engineer Von Shipman says other streets with sufficient width will be looked at in the near future. The width of each lane is five feet.

"We had to eliminate street parking but due to the availability of plenty of off-street parking for Valdosta State University, new with the parking decks, this was a good time to go ahead and make this move," said Von Shipman, City Engineer.

Shipman says property owners in the area have been informed about the loss of some parking spaces along the street.

The City anticipates the lanes will be adequately used when school begins on August 17.
