Boston officials plan to install 20 miles of cycle tracks by 2018

The words “cycle track” may be unfamiliar to most Bostonians, but the term may soon become a familiar phrase at community meetings: By 2018, city officials intend to install more than 20 miles of cycle tracks — bike lanes with physical barriers between bikes and cars — on major thoroughfares throughout Boston.

The plans for the new lanes are part of wider plan for the city’s bicycle infrastructure over the next five years. A report from the city’s bike and transportation departments, expected to be released Friday, includes 100 new miles of bike pathways in the city.
