Spring Garden’s pop-up bike lanes to be taken down this week to accommodate sooner-than-expected repaving of the street

temporary bike lanes on spring garden street

News from Hanna Cockburn, Greensboro director of transportation:

The resurfacing contractor is making quick progress toward the resurfacing of Spring Garden Street and is beginning to raise water-service boxes and manholes to the finished elevation. To facilitate this work, the pop up installation will be removed Friday April 23. This will provide room for the contractor to work and allow for more operational flexibility for roadway users.

We will continue to collect feedback on the bike-lane installation through the remix platform and the survey through April 30.

I plan to participate in the neighborhood meeting on April 26th to share the feedback we have received to date and the timeline for final design decisions and any information we have from the resurfacing contractor on schedule.

  1. Raleigh Bailey says:

    As a Spring Garden Street resident, I can see that the revised bike lanes are creating chaos and loss of parking spaces in a residential area where residents need on-street parking. I have never witnessed any safety problems with the shared lanes system that has been the norm. If it is truly a safety issue, why does the exclusive use apply to only the east bound bike lane? And if it is truly a safety issue, why not designate one lane of the one way streets of West Market and Friendly streets for bike lanes?
