Bike Lane in Langley City

I saw this about a month ago, but I didn’t have a way to take a picture of it. I was walking to the grocery store yesterday (the first warm, sunny day of the year it seems) and happened to come across a separated bike lane. Now it isn’t perfect or even complete (no bike box at the intersections and its only about one block long), but one side of the road has a proper bike lane!

Langley City has a patchwork of incomplete biking infrastructure. I’m hoping that the City will start to invest in completing this network. It seems to me like working began in the late eighty’s on building a bike network, but then something happened. Hopefully Langley City’s Park, Environment, Recreation, and Cultural Committee (which I’m on) will be able to make some recommendation to move this forward.
