Eyes on the Street: Lower Manhattan Bikeways Get More Rideable

caption.

Last week we highlighted the construction underway on the upgraded bike lane and pedestrian space along Allen Street. Just a bit further south, the bikeway portion of the project is already open along Pike Street south of Madison Street. Streetsblog reader Jacob-uptown snapped some great pics of the new lanes and the ongoing work. As his shots show, the new design provides lots of space for cyclists and pedestrians alike and will bring a line of greenery through the neighborhood.

Jacob also found some welcome improvements at the new two-way bike lane along South Street. When Streetsblog attended the opening of the new East River Waterfront Esplanade, the on-street bike lane was blocked by cars, buses, and NYPD vehicles. Now, however, orange barrels keep motor vehicles from intruding where they're not supposed to be.

If you have some photos you want to share, tag them "Streetsblog" on Flickr to get our attention. More pics after the jump.
