2004-2005 Bike Lane Paving Schedule

Thanks go to Elizabeth Baldwin and Tom Branigan from the Streets Department for this information. Torresdale Av (6 mi), Ridge Av (4 mi) , and Woodland Ave (3.5 mi) are the longest segments. All of these striping projects are incidental to the city's and PennDOT's resurfacing program.

The completion of this round of bike lanes will bring the total bike lane mileage close to 200.
