Don't Forget: 10/14 Meeting on Proposed Lombard & South St. Bike Lanes

In order to connect the forthcoming opening of the new and improved South Street Bridge to the Schuylkill River Trail and the 22nd Street Bike Lane, the Streets Department and Office of Transportation is considering installing new bike lanes and sharrows on Lombard, South and Taney Streets between 22nd/21st and the South St. Bridge.

To learn more about the proposed lanes and weigh in on this new bike "facility", please attend tomorrow night's meeting at The Philadelphia School at 25th and Lombard.  City officials will make the presentation and answer questions.  They especially want to hear from neighborhood residents and folks who regularly use those streets.  Bike lane supporters, especially those who live in the Fitler Square/South of South neighborhoods, get there and be heard!

Those proposed lanes would be amazing. I wish I could be there, since the bike lanes on Spruce and Pine have changed my life. That said, when are those streets going to be repaved????? This blog said Sept, then Oct... And, what are the suggested westbound alternatives?
