Seriously: If Queens Boulevard can get a protected bike lane, you can probably put one on almost any street in country!
Yesterday, the Queens Transportation Alternatives Committee hosted the first of what it hopes are many historic bike rides down Queens Boulevard to try out the first ten blocks or so of the newly installed interim bike lane by NYC DOT.
Protected bike lanes can be implemented quickly and cheaply as this video shows. Notice that the first phase simply uses a striped buffer with plastic bollards. A later phase would cast a concrete buffer between the bike lanes and the travel lanes. This is a great example of how to start incrementally and at low cost.
