Last night, the Pittsford Town Board unanimously passed a resolution pertaining to the planned rehabilitation of East Avenue. The resolution consents to NYS DOT utilizing a 10-foot-wide center turn lane in order to make room for federally compliant, 5-foot-wide bike lanes.
The evening of March 28, the Brighton Town Board will consider a similar resolution.
These resolutions pave the way for NYS DOT to let us “have our cake and eat it, too”: a road diet for enhanced motorist and pedestrian safety, and bike lanes for enhanced cyclist safety.
We have created a Facebook event to help folks RSVP:
Please plan to attend and voice your support for bike lanes on East Avenue!
