The shoulder on both sides is designated a bicycle (and pedestrian) path. Separate bicycle/pedestrian access ramps are available immediately on both sides of the bridge. This provides a connection to traffic to and from the Katy Trail, which passes under the bridge. The bicycle lane and shoulders were converted into an extra travel lane in each direction in November 2011 due to the rehabilitation of the westbound Blanchette (I-70) Bridge. Bicyclists should use the Veterans Memorial (Page Ave) Bridge for a river crossing. The bicycle lanes will reopen in 2014.
