  • Protected bike lanes coming to Commonwealth Avenue

    WBUR - 03/25/2015

    How do you make cities safer for pedestrians and for the increasing number of people who ride bikes?

    Once upon a time in America, the automobile was king. But, for a while now, the challenge has been how to design cities that are walkable, rideable and better served by public transportation.

    With that in mind, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has announced a series of initiatives to improve safety and circulation for cars, pedestrians and bicycles. Among the plans — a $17 million project to rebuild part of Commonwealth Avenue. The plan would place the bike lane between parked cars and a rebuilt sidewalk, offering cyclists real protection on one of the city’s busiest streets. When completed in 2017, it would be the first so-called “cycle track” in the city.
