Winterizing protected bike lanes in Klamath Falls

Klamath Falls, Ore. – Changes are coming up this week for a protected bike lane in Klamath Falls.

The protected bike lanes along Oregon Avenue and Ninth Street were dedicated in June.

The delineators will soon be taken out for the season.

“They will be coming down this week, going back up in the spring.”  Explains City Information Officer Kristina Buckley.  “That lane will be used for snow storage.”

Long term plans call for extension of the protected bike lanes to Moore Park.

So far, Buckley notes the bike lanes have been met with mixed reviews.  “They’ve not been warmly received by some people, and by other people they are very well received – and they enjoy the protection that the bike lane provides them.”

Parking will not be allowed in the bike lane once the barriers are removed.
