Haley Street Gets New Bike Lane

There is now a freshly painted bike lane on Haley Street that runs eastbound from Chapala to Alisos Street. The new lane — which did not require the removal of parking spaces or traffic lanes — is part of recent city efforts to improve bike transportation on the Eastside. A new short, right-turn lane has also been added at State Street to improve traffic flow onto Haley Street. The city hopes to add a westbound route in the near future.
