Bike Lanes Now up on Lafayette Avenue


Did we totally miss this? The Department of Transportation approved bike lanes for Lafayette Avenue, after strong community support, this summer. The DOT proposed that the street would be divided into two nine-foot parking lanes, an 11-foot moving lane, and a 10-foot “shared moving lane” for bicyclists and cars on the left side of the street. They also planned to retime the traffic lights to keep drivers at 20 miles per hour. The shared moving lane is now up on Lafayette Avenue, although we can’t say when it was installed. Looks good, though! Community residents asked for additional enhancements to the bike lane, such as color or dotted lines, but that didn’t happen due to space restrictions.
