A Photo Tour of Long Beach’s Vista Street Bike Boulevard

And now for a quick photographic update from the one bicycle project you’ve all been waiting to hear about: Long Beach’s new bike boulevard on Vista Street. There have been a few hangups along the way; additional money needed to be allocated to remove unwanted concrete from under the street, and apparently the painters had difficulty spelling “yield”. Nonetheless, the project appears to be progressing nicely, with construction of a new stop light at Redondo scheduled for next month – providing there aren’t any more typos.

This photo tour is going west to east for 1.3 miles of bike boulevard
