    Bike lanes will have a calming effect, especially if they are protected as the graphic illustrates. Unfortunately, there is NO plan to have protected bike lanes, just designated

    Did something change? Because from that very article (in January) we were told the opposite:

    Still in the planning stages is the Downtown portion of the project, which will feature physically separated bike lanes on Third and Fourth Streets. Chief Mobility Engineer Bill Lewis said that they are looking at examples from other cities that have “cycle tracks” – the term for bike lanes that run along a roadway but are separated from traffic by a curb, landscaped median, bollard, or other means. Whatever form the Columbus version takes, the two separated lanes will be a first for the city.

    Its great that they are planning those on the downtown stretch, but how about in the neighborhoods where people actually live. 4th and Summit go all the way from Clintonville through OSU to the Short North, how about some love for us not just downtown.

    I thought north of 670 Summit and N. Fourth were just going to be restriped with no protective bike lane. I don’t know about Downtown. I’m not sure how much that will slow down traffic either.

    My big fear is ending up with this (lane on the 4th Street bridge) on the full length of 4th and Summit. Its ridiculous that the city can’t do any better than that.

    Oh, gotcha. I guess I read that as being for the whole route, but I guess they are just talking Downtown.

    I agree that it would be a huge missed opportunity if the lanes aren’t separated through IV and WP.

    Not yet. That usually comes later on…

    Though I imagine they’re going to be higher end being a new-build in a prime location with two-car garages per each two-bedroom unit.
