City of Cleveland crews have begun installing new bike lanes on Detroit Avenue on the city’s west side.
The lanes come a couple of months after cyclists, frustrated with the length of time it was taking the long-promised lanes to materialize, installed their own lanes in August made of duct tape and chalk.
Those so-called “guerrilla” lanes were removed by city crews shortly after appearing on a three-block stretch of Detroit Avenue.
Guerrilla striping is an illegal practice of adding bike lanes to an area cyclists deem in need of pavement markings. Cleveland officials said the guerrilla markings were a safety hazard.
The newly-installed official lanes allow for parking on both sides of the street. Bike lanes are between traffic lanes and parking lanes.
