BIKING & WALKING FACILITIES

  • BIKE BOX | An intersection treatment that provides a designated space for people on bikes when stopped at an intersection. Bike Boxes are used to reduce conflict between bicyclists and motor vehicles and increase the visibility of people  on bikes. 
    • Tips for People Driving | When the traffic signal is yellow or red, drivers must stop behind the white stop line behind the green bike box. Don’t stop on top of the bike box. Keep it clear for people on bikes to use. When the light turns green, drivers and bicyclists may move through the intersection as usual, with people on bikes going first. After about 200 feet, the bike lane returns and you will be able to pass safely.
    • Tips for People Biking | When a traffic signal is yellow or red, enter the bike box from the approaching green bike lane. Stop before the crosswalk. If you are turning left, stay to the left inside the bike box. When the light is green, proceed as normal, being aware of approaching traffic and move to the right once through the intersection. The bike lane will resume about 200 feet south of the intersection.
