Bike Lanes Update

The DOT has confirmed that there will be no bike lanes above 29th
Street on Hoyt/Astoria Blvd. The proposed bike lanes in the Astoria
Triangle Redesign were eliminated due to CB1 opposition.

However, given this change, the DOT has decided to widen the parking lanes
where the bike lanes were supposed to be, so as to give cyclists more room
on the shoulder between parked cars and moving vehicles.

The bike lanes from 29th street to Shore Blvd on Hoyt South, and from 29th
Street to Astoria Park, and from Hoyt to 20th Ave along 21st street have all
been kept and will be painted this summer. I believe some portions have
already been painted.
