After years of planning, multiple public forums, a bit of public protest, and a change in engineering firms, it’s finally happening; St. John’s is getting bike lanes. Seriously, like, right now.
“It has gone to tender at this point and they are going to start putting the lanes in,” says Jennifer Mills, Communications Officer for the City of St. John’s. “There will be bike lanes in some parts of the city and, in other parts, there will be arrows, or ‘sharrows,’ painted on the road. They’re looking at mid-summer for completion, about the middle of July.”
You can check out where all this bike laning and sharrowing will take place on this handy map prepared by the city.
To all the kids and grown-ups out there on two wheels, we offer our most enthusiastic “Wheeeee!”
