CALIFORNIA’S ROAD DIET COMES TO BOSTON: Bike wars: West Roxbury pushes back at City Hall’s bike lane ‘road diet.’

Frustrated West Roxbury residents and business owners are pushing back against City Hall’s relentless bike lane agenda, saying the “road diet” that is chopping car lanes out of Centre Street will starve neighborhood businesses.

“It really comes to a matter of survival for businesses in West Roxbury,” said Jim Hennigan of James W. Hennigan Insurance Agency in the neighborhood’s business district. “This just comes down to common sense — people like to shop locally in West Roxbury, but if you can’t get into it, people are going to go somewhere else.”

Why, that’s crazy talk right there — at least to the ears of the Bike Path Left.
