Unique bike path to be installed on Fountain Street

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The city of Providence is creating a new bike lane on Fountain Street with safety in mind.

The path will be placed between parked cars and the curb to protect bikers from traffic.

A dirt “bus island” will also be installed, according to the city, for RIPTA passengers to step off the bus into so they can avoid cyclists.
