East-West Bike Corridor

Recently there has been some major progress towards opening an east-west bike corridor through the city. The Street Department in partnership with the Bicycle Coalition recently announced that Pine Street and Spruce Street will have one lane converted into a dedicated bike lane.  While this has been talked about for some time, the City is planning on beginning construction as soon as August. 

Once the lanes are dedicated the City will have a trial period of approximately nine months to see how the change affects traffic patterns and whether it proves popular among bike riders.

Greenworks Philadelphia strongly supports the east-west bike route and hopes that the city’s cyclists get out and show their support by riding on Spruce and Pine.
