Why is there no ‘vote’ for bike lane renovation? On 8th and 9th Avenues, the bike lanes are falling into neglect and a shabby state. The green paint is uncared for and filthy, and on 9th, there are whole sections (between 50th and around 46th Sts) where there has been no effort to restore them after the street construction these past few years.

As pedestrians are increasingly ignoring the rules and using the bike lanes, there should be freshly renewed graphics to identify the bike riders, as well as a ped. icon with a diagonal line through it to convey the message.

Let’s not forget that the bike lanes were intended not for the convenience of a few, but to stimulate increased ridership by getting people out of cars, and hopefully reducing motor vehicle traffic, as well as facilitating a fast, safe, non-polluting, space saving and healthy means of getting around.

BTW, it’s puzzling that half a million in tax payer’s dollars is the expected cost of the restroom addition at the Jefferson Market library branch. Can we have a cost breakdown for that item? Another question might well be why the proposed raised crosswalk, essentially a wide speed bump, is listed at a quarter million?
