New Bike Racks Installed on Palafox Street through City and DIB Partnership
Visitors to Palafox Market and other downtown Pensacola events now have a new spot to safely park and secure their bicycles on Palafox Street, with the installation of five new bike racks near Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Plaza.
The bike racks were installed through a partnership between the City of Pensacola Public Works and Facilities Department and the Downtown Improvement Board, with DIB purchasing materials and city crews installing the bike racks.
DIB Executive Director Walker Wilson facilitated the purchase of the materials for this project, and the following City of Pensacola Public Works and Facilities employees managed the installation:
- Ryan Metcalf (project lead)
- Erick Jacobs
- Marzett Simpkins
- Gregory Warren
The new bike racks further the City of Pensacola's ongoing efforts to create a more bicycle and pedestrian friendly community, while encouraging residents and visitors to take advantage of the opportunity to explore downtown Pensacola through multimodal transportation.
