Where Should Bicycling Bike and Barrier Lanes Go in Boston?

The Boston City Council is discussing how to improve bicycling infrastructure across the city, with the possibility of adding more bicycling barrier lanes to protect riders.

On Thursday, At-Large Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley led a hearing on how to improve biking infrastructure throughout the city. 

One of the topics is where to put bike barrier lanes and bicycling lanes. 

"The city has done great work to create a vast network of painted bike lanes throughout the city and they have installed barriers on Western Avenue in Allston and we know installation on Malcolm X Boulevard is in the works. This is really exciting," said Pressley to Patch. "During the hearing we’ll explore, with city officials and cycling advocates, what other specific areas of the city we should prioritize for barrier lanes."

So where do you think bike lanes and bicycle barrier lanes should go in Boston? And what do you think of bike-only turning lanes such as the photo with this article? Let us know in the comments section.
