Install special pavement markings on streets too narrow for bike lanes.

Strategy 1.3.2 Details

Chapter 1Bikeway Network: "Bikeways" are streets and trails specifically designed for bicycle travel. Bikeways help bicyclists feel comfortable riding, whether on streets with heavy motor-vehicle traffic or on off-street trails. Surveys consistently indicate that providing bikeways is the most effective way to encourage bicycling.
Objective 3Use innovative designs to expand and enhance the bikeway network.

Strategy 2

Install special pavement markings on streets too narrow for bike lanes.

Shared lane markings direct motorists where to park (i.e., closer to the curb) and drive, thereby reducing the number of conflicts with bicyclists (e.g., bicyclists hit by opening car doors).

Peformance MeasureInstall shared lane markings on 10 miles of streets by 2006 and an additional 8 miles by 2010.
Tracker NotesAside: Shared lane markings have been installed on streets that are wide enough for bike lanes (like Lawrence).
