Painting Jarvis Street

Painting Jarvis Street

Jarvis workers

It’s here! It’s finally here! The paint has finally been put down on Jarvis Street!

The press release came out July 14, saying that the work on Jarvis was about to begin. The lights down the reversible middle lane were removed and solid yellow lines were painted to indicate to drivers that they should no longer use this infamous lane.

Unfortunately, this caused confusion for riders and drivers alike, following the fine example set by these guys. Cyclists were even ticketed for riding down the centre lane (even though she was taking pictures to write this post, to clarify the situation for others).

Painting the actual lines began yesterday (July 24) and continued today. The bike symbols are planned for early this week. Check out some pictures of the painting process!

So if you have any spare time, grab your bike, head to Jarvis and give the new lanes a test ride!!!
