The St. Paul City Council gave final approval Wednesday that puts in place an ambitious plan for bike lanes and biking in the city. The capital city would more than double its current system of bike paths and add more connections to major bike routes.

Nearly 200 miles of bike lanes and paths would be added with emphasis on off-street paths and separated lanes.

Reuben Collins, St. Paul city planner, joins MPR News' Tom Weber to discuss the latest plan.
