This is old news, but I haven’t been paying attention, so it’s new news for me.
Carlisle is getting some new bike lanes next year!
Evidently, the borough government decided that having a pair of four-lane highways running right through the downtown was not such a good idea. So they’re implementing a “road diet” which includes the cycle lanes.
There’s a bunch of PDF files explaining the whole project on the borough website.
Incidentally, there’s a guy running for Mayor of Harrisburg who has as part of his platform:
“Eliminate the six lane, divided highway called Front and Second”
Maybe there’s hope for the same kind of “road diet” treatment in downtown Harrisburg.
