    Default Hayes Street Bike Lanes

    After more than a year of construction, bike lanes are starting to reappear on the section of Hayes Street between Army-Navy Drive and 15th Street. The added bonus is the lanes are getting a coat of green paint! So far, only the southbound lanes have received the paint.

    Anyone know if there are plans to extend the army navy bike lanes further east? After blocking two of the three lanes as part of the Hayes St construction they clearly have proven that Army Navy drive could easily undergo a road diet.

    Yes, there are plans. http://http://bikearlingtonforum.com...provement-Plan

    Army Navy Dr Cycle Track
    Project will consist of a "road diet" on the existing travel lanes on Army Navy Drive, including removal of the median, to provide room for a two-way dedicated bicycling facility on the south side of the ROW, alongside the existing sidewalk. Will also include driveway apron and traffic signalization modifications.
    Construction Completion FY 2017

    Construction along Hayes Street is wrapping up, but a section of the bike lane might be challenging, especially for skinny tires. Just before 15th Street, sections of the concrete seams run right through the bike lane.
