You’ve heard of sneckdowns, those time-traveling bits of infrastructure from the cities of the future that appear on our street corners in the form of piles of unplowed snow?

With Washington DC clearing up its latest blizzard, we were pleased to discover a similarly paranormal phenomenon in the bollard-protected bike lane on L Street. (And to discover that, yes, it did actually make the lane more pleasant to ride a Capital Bikeshare bicycle in.)

The rise of curbs: happening in most U.S. cities, at least occasionally, whether they intend it or not.

The Green Lane Project is a PeopleForBikes program that helps U.S. cities build better bike lanes to create low-stress streets. You can follow us on Twitter or Facebook or sign up for our weekly news digest about protected bike lanes. Story tip? Write [email protected]
