Northridge is Getting the First Protected Bike Lanes in LA

New, 54 comments

Mayor Garcetti announced last summer that the stretch of Reseda Boulevard between Parthenia and Plummer Streets in Northridge would be getting a spruced up and made people-friendlier as one of the first 15 projects in his Great Streets Program, but now that the makeover is finally in process, some exciting surprised have been revealed: when all the upgrades are finished here, Reseda will have Los Angeles's first parking-protected bike lanes (in which parked cars act as a buffer between the car and bike lanes), Streetsblog reports.

Work's underway this week on the safer bike lanes, according to a tweet from Great Streets, as well as on the rest of the makeover, which includes a funky sidewalk and, eventually, street furniture. Thanks to some good timing, the street was resurfaced before any of these upgrades got going, so the bike lanes are going down on a clean slate.
