We were excited last year when the Hyattsville-engraved yellow bike racks started popping up around downtown.
This effort was the first phase of the city’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements project, which is backed by a $110,000 Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development Community Legacy grant.
Now you may be seeing the second phase of the project — on-street bicycle lanes and signage letting everyone know bicyclists are welcome on Hyattsville’s streets. We spotted a crew earlier this week on Hamilton Street in the Historic District spraying a new on-street bike sign.
Detailed engineering plans on the bike lanes and signage have been completed and more information can be found on the City of Hyattsville’s website.
Through this project, Hyattsville is working on creating a bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly community, and we think it’s off to a pretty good start.
