Types of Bikeways
Bike lanes are areas on the road that are marked and signed for use by bicyclists. Motor vehicles may cross bike lanes to make a turn or park.
|Paved paths are two-way facilities that are physically separated from the road and are shared by bicyclists and pedestrians.|
|Paved shoulders are a safety feature usually found on rural highways. Paved shoulders reduce the risk of run-off-the-road crashes, manage stormwater and provide space for bicyclists and pedestrians.|
Shared Lane Marking
Shared lane markings (or “sharrows”) are a roadway marking that helps guide bicyclists to ride outside the “door zone” next to on-street parking and where they are visible to motorists turning from side streets. Shared lane markings are not a type of bicycle facility, they are a marking to help improve safety.
Wide Curb Lane
Wide curb lanes are urban streets that are wide enough (usually 14-feet wide) for a bicyclist and a motor vehicle to share the lane safely. Wide curb lanes are usually used when there is not enough space to add marked bike lanes.
Poll of the Month
Did you know that the county’s vision is to one-day have more than 500 miles of connected trails running throughout the County? Already, there are over 140 miles of paved paths and 100 miles of roads with marked bike lanes. In the next five years, funded projects will add or improve 40 miles of paved paths and 75 miles of roads with marked bike lanes.
