Boulder Transportation Board Takes Up Wider Bike Lanes


Boulder's transportation board is considering a pilot project Monday night that would add wider bike lanes to four city streets, leaving less room for cars. Similar projects have been successful elsewhere, but Boulder transportation planner Dave Kemp says it can be hard to convince drivers that eliminating car lanes is a good idea.

"At first glance it’s natural for someone to not see the benefit, until they see that these projects are possible without significantly delaying traffic," he said.

The bike lanes are meant to assuring those who don't bike much because of safety concerns that they can safely bike through town.
