Protected bike lane installation now underway
Here's what you need to know about short-term impacts on parking and traffic
This week, Arlington County began installation of a protected bike lane on Wilson Boulevard between North Oak and North Quinn Streets. A protected bike lane, also known as a separated bike lane, is a designated lane for cyclists that is located within or adjacent to the roadway and is physically separated from vehicular traffic. This improvement helps ensure the continued safety of cyclists and drivers.
What to expect during bike lane installation:
- Temporary “No Parking” signs will be posted on the street. Once signs are posted, the street must be cleared of all parked vehicles by parking in a garage, driveway or on an adjoining street.
- If your vehicle is towed, contact the Arlington County Police Department at 703-558-2222.
Once the bike lane is completed, there will be no change to the number of on-street parking spaces in this area.
