Boston looks to install bike lanes on Mass. Ave. from the river to Symphony Hall
The city holds a hearing on Thursday to see what people think of the proposed addition of bike lanes to one of Boston's busiest streets.
City officials say bicycles now account for up to 14% of vehicle traffic on the avenue during rush hours - and that Mass. Ave. has one of the highest rates of bicycle accidents in the city. Under the city proposal, five-foot bike lanes would be striped on both sides of the road.
The hearing begins at 7 p.m. at the BPL main branch in Copley Square.
