Mayor Wu and BTD today announced plans for 9.4 miles of new bike lanes to be marked out and built in Boston by December, 2023, part of a three-year plan to ensure that half of all Bostonians will be within a three-minute walk of a "a safe and connected bike route."
Along with the new bike lanes over the next year, the city is also planning to expand the number of Bluebikes rental stations, to make streets safer for pedestrians through more speed bumps and raised pedestrian crossings in at least ten area across the city and hiring more staff to design the new lanes and traffic "calming" measures.
Rough list of new bike lanes:
- Allston-Brighton: North Beacon Street, South Street, Western Avenue, Winship Street
- Back Bay and Downtown: Berkeley Street, Boylston Street, Milk Street
- Fenway/Kenmore: Commonwealth Avenue, Hemenway Street
