The blog of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia. Making your ride better since 1972.
Another milestone - Pictured here is the new striping at MLK Drive Entrance from Eakins Oval. It is hoped that the striping will create the effect of narrowing the lanes. Up at the top of the curve the merge into one lane is now moved back.
Simple. Cheap. Effective!
"simple and cheap", I agree.I will reserve judgement on "effective" until its been in place for some time.
Noticed this on my commute this morning. Put me in a good mood for the whole ride :)I'm glad to see an integral section of my ride become a bit friendlier.
Hope it helps.My impression is that Phila (and Norristown, etc) gov't generally does not care much about protecting people. Kind of reflects the selfish attitude of the populace.Maybe the Mayor cares, but that doesn't have much effect on the behavior of people, police, streets dept, etc
