New Clinton Street bike lanes allow cyclists an easier and safer commute through downtown and to campus.

Bicycling downtown can be intimidating — while cyclists can be ticketed for riding on sidewalks, heavy traffic can make it difficult to ride on the streets.

New bike lanes will now run the length of Clinton Street downtown, providing a designated area for cyclists to ride safely. Clinton Street, previously a four-lane road with two lanes for traffic in each direction, now has a single lane of traffic in each direction with a center turn lane.

City engineer Jason Reichart said the Clinton Street bikeways were added as part of a plan to re-mark the street to add a turn lane.

Reichart said he noticed that the lanes, completed June 4, were used by cyclists immediately.
