From Daily News columnist Stu Bykofsky:

The painted bike lanes we have — such as along Pine and Spruce Streets — are called “buffered bike lanes.” They take up a full lane of traffic, but that’s not enough. Some bicyclists still don’t feel “safe.” To mollify them, the city (thanks to a $2.67 million grant from the federal Transportation Alternatives Program) will add “delineators” to the bike lanes. Delineators are vertical rods spaced along the bike lane.

That is what I know. What I don’t know is how tall and thick they will be, if they will be flexible and, most importantly, if they will allow a car, taxi, delivery truck or ambulance to pull up to the curb.

That’s the big fear expressed by what I call the Blackwell Neighbors [in Society Hill].
