A protected bike lane could be coming to 22nd Street in Center City, but only if you show up to support it!
22nd Street is one of the most popular bike routes in Philadelphia. Over the last few years, it has suffered from potholes, faded paint, and trucks loading in the bicycle lane. As part of the resurfacing planned this summer, OTIS is proposing safety improvements like adding protective posts and moving the bike lane to the left side to minimize the risk of crashes from vehicles making right turns into bicyclists.
Unfortunately, the project is likely to generate a great deal of NIMBY opposition, like we saw when other improvements that were proposed back in July 2017 for the Lombard/27th/South St bike lane project. We need to make sure that Vision Zero supporters Plan on attending this informational meeting to make their voices heard, and to make sure opponents aren't allowed to hold up this critical piece of infrastructure.
If you support safer streets in Philadelphia, OTIS needs to hear from you on this important project!
