According to the City of Philadelphia, 16.2 miles of new bike lanes were installed in 2016 by the Philadelphia Streets Department and PennDOT.

Additionally, nearly seven miles of lanes were upgraded to a higher bicycle facility, including the first parking-protected bike lane on Ryan Avenue, a bollard-protected bike lane on Frankford Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia, new bollards in the 5th Street Tunnel in Old City, and a preview of a protected bike lane along the South Street Bridge (installed over the summer, then removed for the conclusion of construction)—the latter of which was not included on Streets’ final map. Philadelphia currently has two total miles of protected bike lanes.
