For the past several months, Verdugo Avenue, in Burbank, once a 4-lane throughway has been narrowed down to two lanes to make room for a bike lane on each side. This is a very exciting development for cyclists; however, the change may not be permanent, because the Burbank City Council is receiving letters of opposition to these bike lanes. In the fall, Burbank City Council will make their final decision on whether or not to keep these bike lanes, so with your support, let’s get them to say yes! Please send in your comments before the end of July. Support bicycle facilities in Burbank!
