Commonwealth Ave. re-striping to improve bicycle safety

Next week, contractors for the city will be re-striping Commonwealth Avenue between the western end at Washington St. and Lowell Ave.  The new layout will include a 5 foot dedicated bike lane on the westbound side, 1 foot narrower travel lanes, which will help to calm traffic, and slightly wider edge lines on both sides.  The eastbound side will continue to have a 7 foot wide shared parking/biking lane.  No parking is being removed.
