Video: Jarvis with 4 Car Lanes, Still no Gridlock

I saw this on my way downtown this morning, and the Star has picked up on it too.  The city has made Jarvis into a 2-lanes-each-way street, striping off the middle lane with yellow lines in preparation for turning it into a bikelaned street.  It’s good to see drivers abiding by the yellow lines.  It’s […]

Jarvis, pre-Bikelanes

We are happy to report that the July issue of Cyclometer has let us know that the Jarvis bikelanes installation will start this Friday, July 16th.
