New Bike Lanes Connect Temple to Fishtown

As part of its resurfacing program the Streets Department has added completed new bike lanes on Berks St from 7th St to the Berks Market Frankford El Station on Front Street in Fishtown/Kensington. Plans are to complete the eastbound bike lane all the way to Temple University.

Berks at 7th

The one way section of Berks features a narrow buffer to the bike lane.
