Expensive Gridlock Sam,
I’ve observed the parking and site visitors scenario has gotten a lot worse previously yr or so. On the identical time, there’s been a major growth of motorbike lanes. I help constructing extra of them, however I’m curious: do bike lanes make site visitors slower?
It makes intuitive sense: extra space for biking, much less area for vehicles, ergo extra car congestion, proper? Not so easy. The Manhattan bike lane growth in Manhattan began greater than a decade in the past underneath Mayor Mike Bloomberg and his Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan. At first speeds did drop on avenues with bike lanes however, over time, fewer vehicles got here into Manhattan; relying on the yr roughly 25-50,000 much less each day site visitors. Now why didn’t site visitors speeds enhance? Sadly, this was the beginning of the Uber/Lyft period and micro-deliveries. Midtown speeds simply previous to the pandemic had been the slowest because the begin of final century. In 2020, site visitors did loosen up significantly however at this time site visitors is rebounding. Not solely did automotive site visitors return to 100% however truck site visitors is now about 10% above pre-pandemic ranges and every truck is the equal of 2-3 vehicles. So, when you suppose site visitors is worse than ever — you’re proper! Now if we are able to solely get a few of these automotive drivers onto bikes.
