Recently Completed Bike and Pedestrian Projects

A number of Complete Street projects were installed this fall, and many of them included new bicycle lanes. Bicycle facilities were installed on Monroe Avenue connecting the Capital Bikeshare Leslie Avenue and the Commonwealth Avenue bike lanes. A climbing lane was installed on Stevenson Avenue providing traffic calming between Whiting Street and the Stulz Avenue bike lanes. Bike lanes were also installed along Wheeler Avenue and North Hampton Drive. As we continue to expand the bicycle network in the City, projects such as these provide great new links for people who bike.
