Fairmount Ave Bike Lanes Are In!

Great news, Philly bicyclists! The Fairmount Ave bike lanes have been painted.

Huge thanks to everyone who helped make these lanes possible! That includes: every resident who came out to a civic meeting or filled out an online survey; the many supportive Fairmount Ave businesses; Fairmount Civic Association; Fairmount CDC; Fairmount Business Association; Spring Garden Civic Association; Francisville Neighborhood Development Corporation; Mayor's Office of  Transportation and Utilities; the Streets Department; Councilman Bill Greenlee.

The new lanes stretch from Broad Street to Pennsylvania Ave near the Art Museum. No parking was harmed in the making of these bike lanes.
