Head down to Bishop Boulevard and you’ll see the latest bike lanes installed by the city of Dallas connecting Methodist Hospital to the Bishop Arts District (b/w Colorado and Davis). This was one of the first projects BFOC helped work on with the local neighborhood, and Counilwoman Delia Jasso. Not only does this thin the road, making car speeds slower and safer, but also allows for inset parking. The other advantage is crossing distances for pedestrians have just been cut in half making the street safer for all modes of transit.
