Looks like the long awaited bike lanes on the Boston side of the Mass Ave bridge got painted some time in the last couple days. They are paint, and not thermo-plastic so they probably will need a refresh next year, and the bike symbols are not in yet, but its good to see them. I rode them Cambridge bound today (sorry too cold to stop and take a picture), and will ride them Boston bound tonight. So far they are having all the problems new bike lanes have (people driving in them, people parking in them), but that always happens when new bike lanes go in. I did see several cyclists using them, and its nice to see the bike lane system starting to become an interconnected system. Instead of a series of random bits of lane.
Anyone else have give them a try yet? Thoughts? Pictures?
