TULSA — According to officials with the City of Tulsa, Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum and Councilor Kara Joy McKee are holding a ribbon cutting for the new Third Street Bike Lane in Downtown Tulsa.

Officials say the ribbon cutting starts at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The ribbon cutting will take place at Third Street and Boston Avenue, in Downtown Tulsa, to celebrate the completed Third Street bike lane.

If the rain continues, officials say the event will be held under the Performing Arts Center's Third Street awning.

Officials say Third Street is the first full-length completed bike lane connecting one end to the other, from east to west.

The goal of adding the bike lanes to Downtown Tulsa, and extending to other parts of the city, is to make the streets safer for people who are driving, biking, and walking, officials say.

Officials say the bike lane is among those recommended in the Downtown Walkability Study, adopted as a part of the GO Plan.
