Construction got underway Monday on some new bike lanes on the east side. Crews will install the lanes along 22nd Street from Camino Seco east to Harrison. The road will be expanded on both sides by a few feet to make room for the bike lanes.

And another construction project got underway Monday. This one on the far northwest side. It's using a special form of asphalt that cuts down on road noise for people living in the area.
