Working along Mass Ave

Cue the Beach Boys:
Oh wouldn't it be nice...

sidewalk work Mass Ave Boston

The sidewalk along one of the most difficult parts of Mass Ave is enormous, and they're adding a new swath of concrete. Wouldn't it be nice if that were a bike lane?

We can dream!

Oh, it would make my days amazing if that were a bike lane. High levels of anxiety riding around that stretch...

I dare you to ride right down the center of it! _MAKE_ it a bike lane :)

looks like you need some guerllia bike lane people to go and add some bike stencils to the new pavement. ;)

I just got back from Barcelona where every couple of blocks there's a "rambla" or street with a wide center median, and almost all of those had bike lanes.
It was fantastic!

really really tempting to ride down the middle of that wet concrete!

Does that say Police Line? Seems rather strange for construction work.

Yeah, I wish! I was just riding around the MIT neighborhood today in amazement, jealous of their well-designed bikelane system. Would love to have that in my neighborhood and elsewhere in Boston!
