High Street = Two-Way (Kind of!) 🚴🏽

Cyclists have a distinct advantage in New Haven. It's easier and faster to get around on a bicycle than in a car downtown, and more pedestrians and cyclists reduce traffic.

Recently, High Street (one of our city's most classic streets) received an enhancement: double yellow lines. The nuance is that on one side, it's for bicycles.

From New Haven's Director of Transportation:

"Last year we legalized these types of bike lanes through SB502, this year we build them! Plenty of room in road." You can read more about the bike bill here.

"It's imperative for a true cycling city to provide 21st century cycling infrastructure in order to make cycling accessible and available to all," says Hausladen.
