At Truman Parkway and Mountfair Terrace, around 9:25 p.m.
The recently finished DCR repaving of Truman Parkway in Hyde Park included the creation of a bike lane on the southbound side. But as Vivian Gerard discovered and photographed yesterday morning, motorists responded to the new lane by ignoring it. It's especially bad in front of the apartment building at 605 Truman, just before Fairmount Avenue, but a quick drive at lunchtime today showed both car owners and truck drivers ignoring the lane south of Fairmount as well.

An ex-Stop & Shop barely remains on Truman Parkway. Last week, it looked like they'd fill the lot behind the Jersey barriers with construction equipment and never get to tearing down the not-so-supermarket, liquor store, bank and pharmacy.
Mike Ball reports on a ride along what will someday be the Neponset River Greenway bicycle path in Hyde Park and Mattapan:
... Like so many of the Boston-area bike projects, this one is stuck out there, largely isolated from both other cycling/walking futures and the larger city. Yet, this is another neighborhood that will benefit. Plus, this is the Neponset River Greenway and they are building it not coincidentally where the river has always been.
