Physically Separated Bike Lanes

Molly sent me the link to this StreetsFilms video about physically separated bike lanes. (StreetsFilms is a sister project to our friends at StreetsBlog.)

In making the compelling case for separated bike lanes (traffic lanes > parking > bike lanes > sidewalk), the short film makes a pretty compelling case against conventional bike lanes (traffic lanes > bike lanes > sidewalk).

I'd love physically separated bike lanes in Newton. The problem is real estate. What streets are wide enough?

Molly says why not Route 9.
