More Bike Lanes painted!

Ian says “ride your bikes!”
“Just in time for Bike Month, new bike lanes are being installed along Grand Street this week! The new lane striping stretches from 9th Street all the way to 3rd Street at the moment, eventually heading all the way down to Newark Street. Now there are bike lanes heading uptown (along Madison Avenue) and downtown (along Grand Street). The bike lanes are designed to provide space along excessively wide streets for bicyclists while simultaneously slowing down cars (the narrower lane for cars makes drivers slow down but does not reduce roadway capacity). Bike lanes are placed on the left side of the street because bikers are three times less likely to be “doored” (a car door opens up unexpectedly) riding on the passenger side of parked cars. So get out on your bikes this weekend and take a cruise around your Hoboken streets! Enjoy!”
