Federal Street to Receive Bike Lanes

Adapted from a Greenfield Mayor's Office press release:

Bicyclists will be able to traverse Federal Street in designated lanes beginning this week. The bicycle lanes will run from Silver Street in the north to Garfield/Maple Streets in the south. Pavement markings, “sharrows”, south of the intersection will call attention to the need for cars to share the travel lane with bicycles as the available lanes narrow due to on-street parking from there to Main Street.
