Stripes on Streets
Getting stripes on streets is critical for getting butts on bikes. And the more riders there are who feel safe on the streets, the safer we all are.
Cedar Street Striping Project
BCAT met with the DPW Director about streets that could use fog line striping to slow traffic and provide a safer space for bicyclists. At the meeting, the group also reviewed streets that could have narrower travel lanes to allow for a wider shoulder. DPW felt that Cedar Street, which is heavily used by drivers coming from Route 30 and those wishing to take a short-cut to avoid downtown, was an ideal candidate for this type of improvement. In the Spring of 2018, Cedar Street was restriped. There is now a wider shoulder on the west side of the road for pedestrians and cyclists, and a narrower travel lane for cars which has proven to slow traffic.
