Bastanchury Road has new bike lanes.
Riders can use the lanes to the side of the roadway along a half-mile stretch of Bastanchury Road between Prospect Avenue and Imperial Highway and another half-mile stretch between Eureka Avenue and Lakeview Avenue.
The bike lanes were part of projects widening the street from one driving lane in each direction to two lanes. A two-way turn lane was added in the median.
“Adding capacity has improved traffic flow,” Assistant city engineer Rick Yee said.
Other improvements include adding sidewalks, landscaping and retaining walls.
The bike lanes were funded through AQMD’s Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee, Yee said.
