A few weeks ago, during my normal commute down Washington Street, I noticed an extra designated lane on the left hand side of the multi-laned road. Could it be a bike lane? There were no indicative markers such as a little man on a bicycle or arrows showing the flow of traffic.
Friday I noticed someone had begun to stencil them in!
It looks like the new bike lane on Washington Street starts at Raymond Boulevard and ends at Broad Street (near Washington Park). A definite step forward for the city, I hope that residents take advantage of this new lane instead of riding on the sidewalk or against traffic flow. Right now Newark is a far cry from bike-friendly cities like Philadelphia and New York City but, with more bike awareness I think eventually we’ll get there!
