While bike lanes have been a huge issue in Alexandria, Virginia, especially on Shuter's Hill (King Street) where this photo was taken, this illegal parking is just thoughtless.
The City of Alexandria recently released a memo (PDF) showing that in the 18 months since the King Street bike lanes were installed that crashes are starting to decrease. Has speed as well?
The City's Department of Transportation & Environmental Services (T&ES), Transportation Planning Division will hold a public meeting on an upcoming Complete Streets project along King Street between Radford Street and Janneys Lane on Tuesday, November 17, from 6:30-8:30 PM at T.C. Williams High School Rotunda located at 3300 King Street in Alexandria.
New bicycle lanes have been installed on five streets in Alexandria, Virginia, adding three more lane miles of facilities to Alexandria's bike network.
