Coming soon: Bike lanes on Spruce and Pine across Center City

Coming Soon – Bike Lanes for Spruce and Pine

This just in from the Bicycle Coalition’s “Philadelphia Bicycle News” blog: One-way buffered bike lanes will be installed in both Spruce and Pine Streets along most of their lengths, made possible by the dropping of a travel lane.  The project, overseen by the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and carried out by the Streets Department, will be a simple and inexpensive line painting operation; construction could begin as soon as August. Over the next 9 months or so the streets will be evaluated, and if the lanes are proven to be beneficial, then permanent striping will be added when the streets are repaved in 2010.
