A new “protected bike lane” is being created along Hudson St. from Hudson Square up all the way through the Village, where it will connect with the existing, protected bike lane in Chelsea on Eighth Ave. The lane, painted green, is similar to protected bike lanes on First and Second Aves. — and now on Lafayette St./Fourth Ave., too — which are buffered from motor traffic by a lane of parked cars.
