Plans are being formulated for two north-south bike lanes for Center City Pennsylvania. Deputy mayor for transportation, Rita Cutler, stated that “sometime in late April”, they will be announcing the tentative streets as well as the “enforcement program”. At present, she stated that the aim is to have a southbound and northbound lane about a block apart creating a route between Spring Garden and South Streets. Lanes are expected to be six foot wide without the removal of parking, if possible. Residents with a vested interest in the future development of these new paths should make an effort to attend upcoming meetings to express personal opinions on the matter. To read more, click here.
