Description

The recent resurfacing of Chestnut St. between 34th and 40th Streets brought unfortunate changes for cyclists. First, the wide, right-hand-side parking lane (34th-38th) that used to double as a bike lane was removed and replaced with a narrow parking lane and a narrow driving lane. Now I encounter multiple cases of harassment per week due to drivers' annoyance at me taking up the right lane. The section between 38th and 39th has recently been converted to a "loading zone", which causes even more confusion and rage in drivers, who appear to think it is a bike lane. A dedicated bike lane all along this section would be fantastic, but failing that, some nice big "SHARE THE ROAD" signs would also be excellent.
