While the City of Portland has agreed with a recommendation from the Federal Highway Administration to “test” non-colored bike boxes, the New York City Department of Transportation is going the other direction — they’re adding more paint to their roads for cyclists.
Check out the new bike lane at an intersection near Madison Square Garden Park:
“Taking back multiple lanes of traffic has produced something I never thought I would see – a green bike lane that splits – and gives you two choices to travel! I rode both ways just to feel like I didn’t miss anything.”
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
