BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Boulder is proposing to remove vehicle lanes this summer to pave the way for wider bike lanes.

The Daily Camera reports (http://bit.ly/1FL1zDp ) a Transportation Advisory Board public hearing will be held Monday for opposing views to come together and discuss the “right-sizing” pilot program.

Transportation planners and cycling advocates say the project would make bike commuting safer and would bring comfort to those who are currently too afraid to ride on the streets.

Those against the plan say it will increase congestion on the roads.

Bus driver for the Boulder Valley School District, Heather Burke, says she’s worried about the increased traffic when students are getting on and off the bus.

The plan would reduce certain roads from four lanes to three lanes and include a 7-foot bike lane.
