Article - Fredericton NB: Bike lanes long overdue

Daily Gleaner, June 20

The City of Fredericton wants to help motorists and cyclists co-exist once new bike lanes appear on city streets next month. An information campaign is being launched to make drivers and bikers aware of the changes that will see bike lanes start showing up on several streets in two weeks.

The bike lanes are a first part of a trails and bikeways network called for by the city's trails and bikeways master plan that proposes ways to foster the use of active transportation. Active transportation is defined as any form of human-powered transportation. Bike lane lines and signs will be installed July 2-11.
