St Paul has at long last gotten its act together, and put some bike lanes in.
Como Avenue from University to Dale was repaved and reduced from four lanes down to two (+ a bike lane).
John Ireland Blvd was repaved from the capitol to the cathedral, and reduced from four lanes down to two (+ a bike lane).
The only question is, what took them so long? This kind of change makes all the difference. It slows down too-fast traffic and makes it safe for pedestrians and bikers.
Extra points because: the new bike lane icon has a helmet on.
