Happy Birthday, Comm Ave Project!
As of November 3rd, 2019, it’s been three years since ground was broken on the Commonwealth Avenue Improvement Phase 2A project (CAP 2A). The project’s most visible feature is its physically protected bike lanes but it also improves crossing distances and visibility for pedestrians, signal timing for people in cars, and efficient operation for the Green Line.
The project is not quite done yet but we’re celebrating its near completion with some breakfast in the new bike lane. Stop by the corner of Commonwealth Avenue and Agganis Way on Monday, November 4th between 8am and 10am for free coffee, snacks, and bike bells (while supplies last)!
Even if you can’t make it to the “party,” be sure to read BU Today’s Nine Safety Tips for Using the New Comm Ave Bike Lanes.
