New Bike Lanes Being Installed On Comm. Ave.

Written by Boston Biker on Aug 18

Tristan reports:

Hey – wanted to make sure you’d heard (Im sure you have), but there are new bike lanes on comm ave! I was only on comm from Packards corner inwards, but they were in place on that whole stretch. Beautiful!

And AB Bikes saw them grinding off the arrows in preparation for moving the lane markings.

    I love surprises like this. I dont remember this stretch being on the planned maps.

    A bike box tucked in to where the A-line tracks cut west from the B-line would be ideal so cyclists can wait for traffic coming down brighton ave in anticipation of merging into the outbound carriage lane, well ahead of the cars stopped at the light. Of course, it would work best if those 20 feet of rail could be dug up or paved over.

    I disagree, those rail bits are the only connection we have left to the A line and the NIMBYs who killed it.

    That 20ft stub gives the MBTA a place to shoehorn disabled trolleys. Without it the B line would be an even bigger disaster than it already is. Installing those rubber crossing mats along the rails and making sure there is signage to alert rookie cyclists to the proper crossing technique would be far better.
