Streetfilms: Floating Parking

Streetfilms posted this video about floating parking and separated cycletracks.

In this configuration, parking sits away from the curb with a buffer between it and a bike lane that sits against the curb. This configuration protects cyclists from auto traffic on the roadway while also creating a buffer to keep drivers and cyclists from conflict in the “door zone.”

We could do this on Broadway quite easily.
