Downtown’s First and Main Streets Bike Lanes Underway

Posted on 06/15/2012


Lane markings scraped on Main Street – new northbound bike lane due there very soon

Bikas spotted work underway on the new bike lanes on First Street and Main Street in Downtown Los Angeles. For detailed background on what the city of Los Angeles is calling the Downtown Bikeway Network, see this overview and this post on the new Los Angeles Street lanes.

Since last weekend, Main Street has been scraped, with the former right lane markings “erased”:

Main Street (at 2nd Street) pavement markings scraped in advance new bike lane being added

First Street, which received preliminary markings last weekend, now has the bicycle icons in the new lanes:

Bicyclist icons added to First Street. Lane strip markings are still preliminary versions, likely to be completed this weekend
