    Have you seen Active Trans’ plan for Logan Blvd? The rendering on that page is right in front of the Target, a spot that already has (imperfect) bike lanes and no service drives.

    The boulevard probably could be downgraded to 3 lanes + bike lanes, with refuge islands. However, that would require the end of weekend church and resident parking. Maybe a few sections of the service drive could be widened a bit to include diagonal parking where needed.
