Currently, Hillsborough Street and its new plan have no room for bike lanes, but a local group of bikers is still hoping this will change soon. The group took to the streets back in November to ride to City Council in support of the bike lanes and now it is up for public discussion at the Public Works meeting on Tuesday at 5pm. The meeting will be in the same space as the City Council meetings on Hargett Street.
The group also put together a short presentation of their proposal for Hillsborough Street. It is illustrated below in the image gallery but on Fayetteville Street in Downtown Raleigh because it was not possible to do so on Hillsborough Street currently b/c of the construction.
The issue of bike lanes on Hillsborough St will be brought up at the public works meeting Tuesday at 5pm. This is the important one. We will meet at 4pm at the belltower and ride down to the meeting. Bring helmets, locks, lights and lots of friends.

We taped off Fayettville st this morning to illustrate exactly, foot by foot, what we are proposing. Please see attached PDF with some of the photos.
