We’re adding separated bike lanes on Boylston Street, Berkeley Street, a block of Beacon Street, and two blocks of Columbus Avenue as part of an expansion to close gaps in Boston’s low-stress bike network. The new lanes will create continuous, comfortable rides through the Back Bay from Fenway and the South End. The new, two-way lane on Beacon Street will bring bikers all the way to the Arthur Fiedler Footbridge and the Charles River.

We will have a table set up on the Commonwealth Avenue mall at Berkeley Street. Drop by anytime to view the design plans, ask questions, and learn more about the project.
