New bike lanes on Jefferson

Central District News reports that the city has finished painting an uphill bike lane and downhill sharrows on Jefferson between 9th and 19th. I will head over and give it a test run sometime soon. In the meantime, from CDN:

We caught city workers out in the sun this weekend, installing the new bike lanes we first mentioned two weeks ago.

The lanes shifted the roadway centerline about two feet to the north, and make more logical sense than the ones added to Cherry Street last year: a full lane goes uphill (eastbound), and the sharrows go downhill (westbound).
