Marianne took a bike ride down Father Morissette Blvd to see how the new bike lanes are working out. Her review and photos are worth a read:
As you can see, the road is set up with a lane for car traffic, a buffer lane, a bike lane, another buffer lane, and a parking lane. As I was riding down the road, I noticed that traffic was going at about half the speed it used to pre-bike lanes/parking.
Go read the rest! And if you are a biker, maybe it’s time to allow FMB to be part of your route if you need it! Remember, this change has been something of a controversy in political circles, so it’s good to hear from people who actually will use it instead of the usual back-seat-driving we have every Tuesday night. (You know, from certain Councilors who apparently know better than traffic engineers, etc.)
Update: And speaking of transportation and changes to come, the draft Corridor Study & Feasibility Analysis for the Rourke Bridge has been published, and can be found here. Final public meeting is Monday, September 30 at 6:30 PM at the Lowell General Hospital.
