UPDATE: I have confirmed that the paint on Cherry east of Glenstone is intended to be a bicycle lane. The engineer I contacted said that the lane should have been painted 5.0 feet from the face of the curb and 3.0 feet from a pavement seam such as the edge of gutter.
What it is ain’t exactly clear. Is it a bicycle lane? Is it a shoulder?
So the Bicycle Friendly Springfield group on Facebook lit up briefly last week about some new paint on Cherry east of Glenstone. I was encouraged to see lots of skepticism. Today’s video demonstrates that skepticism is warranted.
But, is it a bicycle lane? Hmmmmm… I’ll try to find out on Tuesday. For the following video, given recent history, I’m assuming it is a lane.
This video contains lane measurements, and it demonstrates lane positioning based upon my opinion about how one should drive a bicycle on Cherry.
