DES MOINES, Iowa —The Des Moines City Council approved a plan for the city's first "quiet street" Monday night.

The plan calls for creating new safety features for bicycles on Southwest 14th Street.

The quiet street is created by adding pavement markings, new signage and other measures to make the street a bicycle-friendly route, city officials said.

The street runs from Gray's Lake Park south to Blank Park Zoo, creating a corridor for bikes that would run from the south edge of the city all the way downtown.

Some residents expressed concern about the cost of the project, which is estimated at more than $270,000.
