Deputy Mayor Recommends Bike Lanes To Become Permanent

At tonight's Spruce and Pine Sts. bike lane meeting Deputy Mayor Rina Cutler announced that she will recommend to the Mayor that the bike lanes on Spruce and Pine become permanent. According to a report from KYW the lanes will be repaved next year and there is a possibility that the lanes will be colorized (probably green as recommended by the Federal Highway Administration). Navigational signage to direct people to and from the bike lanes will also be added.

The city reported that bike traffic increased between 65% and 100% while motor vehicle traffic dropped 11%. Motor vehicles speeds dropped slightly at less than 2mph.

"Motor vehicles speeds dropped slightly at less than 2mph."
- I'm curious what the before and after average speeds were.

She was surprised, as she walked along, to see how pretty the
country was about her. There were neat fences at the sides of the
road, painted a dainty blue color, and beyond them were fields of
grain and vegetables in abundance.
