Renewed calls made for bike lanes along 9-W

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS - Renewed calls are being made for a bike lane on a popular road for bicyclists along the Hudson River.

Route 9-W, which parallels the Hudson River, is a road heavily traveled by cyclists. It runs through several towns, including Englewood Cliffs, Alpine, and Tenafly.

The four-lane street has been the site of dozens of accidents. The police chief of Englewood Cliffs says motorists drive too fast and don't always pay attention. He also says cyclists often run red lights and fail to obey the traffic laws.

The borough is asking the Department of Transportation to create a lane specifically for bikes.
