The first progress report of the Cycling Safety Ordinance is out:
- 4.12 miles of protected bike lanes were completed or started construction between May 2021-Apr 2022
- 4.9 more miles planned by May 2022
We're off to a great start. Thanks City staff!
New #pride crosswalks being installed last night in @CambMA. This time using preformed thermoplastic that should last several years. With the proposed amendments to the #MUTCD, these would not technically be allowed (though we’d keep doing them anyway). https://nacto.org/program/modernizing-federal-standards/
Does Mass Ave, between Inman + Trowbridge St look bike-friendly to you, particularly for children or newer riders?
