More Bicycle Lanes – Fewer Traffic Lanes

The Public Works Committee of the Oakland City Council is considering a plan to reduce the number of traffic lanes and the creation of bike lanes along some heavily traveled routes in Oakland.  Among the changes to be discussed at the committee meeting at 9:30 this morning:

•             MacArthur Blvd.  – along Mills College (Richards Rd. to Seminary) 4 lanes down to 2 – one lane of traffic in each direction and eliminate parking on the Mills College side of road – add bike lane in each direction


•             Broadway – from 30th up to Broadway Terrace 6 lanes down to 4 – 2 lanes of traffic in each direction – add bike lane in each direction


•             East 12th St. – from 14th Ave. to Fruitvale 6 lanes down to 4 – 2 lanes of traffic in each direction – add bike lane in each direction

These are great proposals. The number of bike riders in Oakland is definitely on the upswing. More and better facilities will serve the current riders and encourage more.

The BE comes standard with painted wheels and front and rear fenders and the white/grey version has painted spokes too, giving it a very clean and classy look.
