[PeopleForBikes] Protected bike lanes coming to town will make biking easy on big streets

The following is a guest post by PeopleForBikes, a movement to improve bicycling in the U.S.

Great news for comfortable biking: Boston is one of six cities recently selected to receive two years of free expertise and support for building a network of protected bike lanes that physically separate bike and auto traffic. The PeopleForBikes Green Lane Project will help the city build the Connect Historic Boston project, which starts construction this fall on a family-friendly figure-eight bike loop around and through downtown.

New York City’s network of protected bike lanes, currently the country’s biggest, has been a big part of making Citi Bike bikeshare so popular there: in a recent Manhattan bike count, 45 percent of Citi Bike users were using the protected lanes. We’re eager to see more of this modern bike infrastructure hit the streets. The image above is an artist rendering from Connect Historic Boston of what the protected lanes might look like on Causeway Street at Haverhill Street.
