If you're not a fan of bike lanes on New York City streets you may want to stop reading now. According to DNAinfo New York, cycling advocacy group Transportation Alternatives is considering drafting a proposal which would install bike lanes on Fifth and Sixth avenues.
The organization launched a website where New Yorkers can share their ideas of how to make the two streets safer for bikers and pedestrians. DNAinfo New York reports that Transportation Alternatives plans to develop proposals for the two corridors connecting Washington Square Park and Central Park. There is a petition on the website people can sign supporting protected bike lanes on Fifth and Sixth avenues from 59th street south. The organization's communications director Michael Murphy said that an eventual proposal could include protected bike lanes on Sixth Avenue.
What do you think? Will more bike lanes make the streets safer for bicyclists and pedestrians?
