City to Experiment with Downtown Bike Path

The city will set up temporary bike lanes on Henry Street to see what impact two way bike lanes will have. According to today’s (9/13/19) Gazette Newspapers:

The pilot project will allow the city to test a low-cost idea for the urban segment of the Saratoga Greenbelt Trail, a larger plan for a bicycle and multiuse loop through the countryside around the city and into its downtown core. Henry Street will be made one-way southbound between Lake Avenue and Spring Street, parking will be limited to the west side of the road, and temporary two-way bike lanes will be marked on the east side, to see if Henry could feasibly become part of an-street bike route.

Steve Williams has written an excellent piece describing the project in more detail and placed it in the context of the wider project.
