existing bike trails throughout Indiana and to estimate the cost of the
concept. By July 1, 12019, the task force will present at least six
innovative ways to fund the connections to the existing bicycle trails
and will prepare a timeline that shows the phases of completion per each
funding method. In addition the report will include recommend changes
to Indiana law to increase bicycle safety on trails and roadways.
