LORRAINE PATTERSON AND her granddaughter Lena Jones take a breather while having fun biking on Lincoln’s Quaker Street, which recently were made more friendly to bikers and pedestrians thanks to painting of “advisory lanes” that create more room along the sides of the road.
LINCOLN — Lincoln’s roadways aren’t exactly ideal for bike or pedestrian lanes.

Still, Bryant has been working for more than a year to find a solution. Now, thanks to an “Advisory Bicycle Lane Design Guide” and a $1,500 RiseVT Amplify Grant, one phase of that solution is at hand.
The grant will cover the expense of painting advisory lanes...
