    Presumably there will still be (barely) enough room for a southbound bicyclist to get by?

    Right now it’s 1 lane in each direction. On the Boston-to-Cambridge side there are several signs indicating that bikes can use the whole lane, which is nice (although this is always the case and everyone should know that already, right?)

    For some reason there aren’t any signs going the other way. I took the whole lane anyway.
