A bike lane on Roland Avenue in Baltimore had been separated from vehicle traffic by vehicle parking, but no longer.
"A crew began removing the protected bicycle lane on Roland Avenue in Baltimore on Wednesday, despite protests from bike advocates," reports Colin Campbell.
"The bike lane, installed as part of a road resurfacing project in 2015, has been the subject of controversy for years," according to Campbell. Planetizen picked up the news about bikelash against the Roland Avenue bike lane in 2018.
As Campbell explains, the bike lane had been configured to position parked cars between the bike lane and moving vehicles. In March, Mayor Catherine Pugh, currently on a leave of absence, ordered the city to move the bike lane to the outside of the parking lane and paint the bike lane green.
The advocacy group Bikemore has been protesting the reconfiguration, and pushing the city to test a road diet on Roland Avenue. As reported in an article by Alison Knezevish from March, Mayor Pugh nixed that idea in addition to ordering the reconfigured bike lane.
