Bike 'lane' stripping on Chapel, John streets to be first of many for Charleston

The bike lane that went down on downtown Charleston's Chapel and John streets today is the start of an effort to mark more roadways for cyclists on the historic peninsula. 

The slightly narrow three-foot "guidelines" are planned for a few other strategically selected roads that have the needed width of some 40 feet. 

Multiple reports abound from the city's press conference today, but the Charleston City Paper's is the best yet; read it here. And there's a map for you below.

Update February 16, morning: The Post and Courier has published a more flushed out write-up, but it's not markedly better than the City Paper's. Still it has some nice photos; get both here.

The lanes mentioned today will be completed by March of this year.
