Cyclists who are tired of dodging pedestrians, dogs, and tourists on the popular Waterfront Park riverfront path, now have a more direct route all to themselves. Striping crews were at work today on the new bike lanes coming to Naito Parkway. They’ve added the bike lane characters and final striping is expected soon.
The new, 5′ wide bike lanes go from SW Jefferson to NW Couch, just south of the Steel Bridge. They come as part of the Naito Parkway Reconstruction Project, a federally funded project that has rebuilt the worn-out street from the ground up.
To make room for the lanes, a center median was narrowed. On the west side of the road, curbs were pushed back to make room for new on-street parking.
