If your bike commute to work has been thwarted for the past three days by snowy lanes, it won't be for much longer.
The Department of Sanitation was working on clearing them Wednesday, an agency spokesperson said Wednesday afternoon.
"After snow storms, we work to clear the 6,000 miles of city streets first to open them to emergency vehicles, and then work on bike lanes," DSNY spokesperson Belinda Mager said in an email.
As of Tuesday afternoon, 99 percent of city streets had been plowed after Saturday's record-setting blizzard, the city agency told PIX 11. Altogether 1,726 snow laborers had cleared away 99.5 million cubic yards of snow, weighing 7.25 million tons.
But the city's bike lanes, a network the city has extended in recent years to service thousands of commuting cyclists and reduce traffic deaths, remained clogged with snow and slush the next morning.
