A bicycle corral was installed in what was previously a vehicle parking space at the southeast corner of Eighth and Massachusetts streets. As part of an effort to improve downtown bicycle parking, the Lawrence City Commission approved in February three bike corrals, each providing space for 10 bicycles. Besides the one at Eighth and Massachusetts, corrals were approved for 100 E. Ninth St. and in front of the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vermont St. The city's Bicycle Advisory Committee is calling the three bike corrals a pilot program. The committee plans to evaluate their usage, determine whether the city needs more and possibly create a system for businesses to request and install them.
