For those of you who are bike enthusiasts you will be happy to know that the Lancaster Public Works is in the process, with the city's traffic commission, to begin a pilot program to put a protected 2 way bike lane in Lancaster City. The pilot would last for a year and would go along W Chestnut St from College Ave to Mulbery St.
The project is in response to a growing biking community in cities across the globe. Public meetings have been held to discuss this and with good attendance the meetings have been productive, according to Mayor Gray. With continued support and a successful pilot Lancaster City could see accessibility and safety for bikers increase significantly in the years to come. Residents on W Chestnut St should be aware of the program as it will change the designation of the lanes on the street, primarily on the south side of the street.
The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec 9th 2015 at 7pm at Reynolds Middle School. Attendance and input is encouraged by anyone.
