Portsmouth to add bike lane on Lafayette Road

NH1.com

PORTSMOUTH — A plan to add a bike lane along Lafayette Road are entering their final engineer design this fall and winter.

City officials hope construction of the lanes will begin in the spring of 2017, according to Seacoast Online. The lane will run from Andrew Jarvis Drive and go all the way downtown.

In some sections the bike lane will be separated from the roadway by a physical safety barrier. In other places the lane will be on the other side of parked cars. The remaining sections will only be separated by striping.

While some support the addition of bike lanes, others are speaking-up against the lane, expressing concerns about traffic flow and parking issues.
