Walnut Stripes

Big step for Newton with the striping of Walnut Street between Beacon Street and Commonwealth Avenue. The project is slated to continue down To Newtonville, stripes ending near Clyde Street, for now.

The stripes on Walnut Street are part of an effort by the Newton Bicycle/Pedestrian Task Force, particularly Chairman George Kirby, to promote biking by Newton North High School students.

Lots of room for cyclists, like this young lady approaching Beacon just hours after the stripes were painted.

The stretch between Homer and Comm. Ave. is a mess and needs to be revisited or repainted. The bike lane is so wide from the curb especially when no one is parked there that motorists are using as a second lane. The "left" lane is being treated as a left turn only lane while everyone else sort of crams into the "bike" lane.
