New bike lanes bring new parking rules to Central Parkway
CINCINNATI (Angela Ingram) -- Bicyclists will begin using the newly built bike lane on Central Parkway Monday, bringing big changes when it comes to parking.
Drivers on Central Parkway are used to parking next to the curb, but all that will change come Monday morning.
A protected bike lane that runs from 12th Street to Marshall Avenue will be enforced, and that means changing where you park. It will take some getting used to-- parking in a lane that used to be dedicated to driving.
However, the Department of Transportation has put up permanent signs explaining the new rules.
South of Liberty parking remains the same and there will be 24 hour parking.
North of Liberty, heading north, there are parking restrictions between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.
North of Liberty, heading south, there are parking restrictions between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m., and police will ticket those who don't follow the rules.
Drivers might also notice new concrete platforms for Metro buses. They were built so that buses don't cross into the bike lanes.
The Department of Transportation will have city cars parked on Central Parkway early Monday morning to serve as an example.
Transportation planners say it's all about making Cincinnati a healthier, more vibrant city.
