Main St. Bike Lanes in progress

Preliminary mark out paint between 6th and 9th prepares the way for thermoplastic striping

You may have seen the new bike lanes being installed downtown on Los Angeles St. and First St. Soon cyclists will also be able to enjoy 1.4 miles of mostly buffered bike lane along Main St., as well, between 9th St. and Cesar E. Chavez Ave., which will provide important connections to downtown LA’s emerging bicycle network.

The facility will compliment the existing buffered bike lane on Spring Street, allowing southbound and northbound travel on dedicated bike lanes along these popular bicycling routes. This project will also connect to existing bike lanes on Main St. between 9th St. and Venice Blvd./16th St. and the new buffered bike lanes on 1st St.

Final striping will be completed in the next couple weeks. In early July, we’ll release a final accounting of bike lanes completed in fiscal year 2011-2012 (July 1, 2011 through June 30th, 2012).

In addition to all the lane mileage, Chandler Blvd. also has a 2.8 mile Class I  bike path that starts from Vineland Ave. (near the Metro Red Line North Hollywood Station) and continues to the Burbank City limit at N Mariposa St..
