Today’s Headlines: City Makes Promise of 40 Miles of Bike Lanes

6:33 AM PDT on June 15, 2012

Featured Headline: Remember when LADOT sent its crews out to paint 20 miles of Sharrows last year?  Bike advocates scoffed that the new paint was about "stat padding" that LADOT was just throwing out the lamest of bike infrastructure to meet the Mayor's promise of 40 miles of new bike infrastructure.  Apparently, they didn't need to pad the stats.  At BIKAS, Joe Linton buries the news that the city surpassed the "40 miles" goal with new lanes on Burbank Blvd.  You can check which lanes have opened by downloading Linton's "new bike lane spreadsheet."
