PRESCOTT - In a move that one councilman predicted would upset advocates on both sides of the issue, the Prescott City Council opted this week for three lanes on Sixth Street, without striped bicycle lanes.

By a 4-3 vote on Tuesday, the council approved re-striping the central Prescott street to include one driving lane in each direction and a center left-turn lane.

That will be a change from the current street configuration that includes two driving lanes in each direction, but it falls short of the recommended three lanes with a striped bike path on each side...

Betcha they'd settle for a 'horses only' lane!
Prescott is a heck of a nice western town. Have cycled the area several times; however cost of extra paint could ruin the economy!
