Pacific Highway in Old Town is Repaved and Restriped with Buffered Bike Lanes

In January this year, I noticed new buffered bike lanes on Pacific Highway. However, the asphalt was of very poor quality that desperately needed to be fixed.

Last week, I noticed that the streets were being repaved and markers were placed where the new stripes would be painted.

As of today, Pacific Highway in Old Town now features smooth roads with those same buffered bike lanes on most stretches of Pacific Highway.

Have you had a chance to ride on Pacific Highway since the street was repaved and restriped? How was your ride?
