Eyes on the Street: Incredible Reappearing Bike Lane

Photo: ddartley/Flickr

We've been featuring this item from Streetsblog Flickr pool contributor ddartley on the sidebar for a few days, and it's time for a promotion. On the First Avenue bike lane by 25th Street, construction has temporarily wiped out the parking-protected bike lane, and in its place is a highly-functional buffered bike lane. Bike traffic keeps on flowing.

Construction-related bike lane disruptions can still get pretty egregious -- ask anyone who's biked on Grand Street between Center and Chrystie the last 16 months -- but this high-quality detour isn't the only one our readers have spotted. A few blocks west of the chaotic Con-Ed work on Grand Street, signs guide cyclists smoothly away from curbside scaffolding and onto a short temporary path.
