Bike Providence reports that a Bike Lane will be appearing on the Henderson Bridge as soon as next Wednesday. Bike lane signs are up and a query from Bike Providence to RIDOT found that striping (which includes grinding the pavement to remove existing striping) should have commenced this week. Anyone been over the bridge to see if this is indeed happening?
This is actual lanes painted on the roadway not the sidewalks currently existing. Nice to have the bikes and pedestrians separated, I hope having the bikes on the roadway works out though. Some sort of raised berm between the bike lane and travel lanes would make me feel a bit better I think, but we’ll see what the bikers say once they get a chance to use it.
