After the loss of the 1/2 mile Monroe Street bike lane over the weekend, new bikes lanes were installed on Walther Avenue. The new bikes lanes extend from Parkside Drive to Moravia Rd on both the southbound and northbound sides. As of yesterday, the linear markings were installed with the bike symbols to be installed as the weather clears.
This 1/2 mile long section provides two new bike lanes while fulfilling a long-time request from the Acadia and Beverley Hills neighborhoods – the lifting of rush hour parking restrictions. Residents along Walther Ave are now able to park in front of their homes 24 hours a day. Motorists using Walther will have to adjust to only one travel lane at all times between Parkside and Moravia.
Next year, Walther Avenue will be resurfaced between Moravia Road and Eastern Parkway. The new bike lanes will be continued through this section expanding the city’s bike network into the Waltherson community.
