Install signs advising motorists and bicyclists that bicycle traffic may move to the center of the travel lane.

Strategy 1.3.3 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 3

Install signs advising motorists and bicyclists that bicycle traffic may move to the center of the travel lane.

This sign is appropriate when lanes are too narrow for safe joint use. By taking the full lane, bicyclists become more visible and discourage unsafe passing by motorists. Install on streets that are important connectors in the bikeway network and, where appropriate, with bikeway pavement markings. If successful, expand initiative.

Peformance MeasureTest signs at 10-25 locations by 2007.
