Types of Bikeways

Bike Lanes

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 Shoulder

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. Paved Shoulder

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.

Did you know?

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.
The MPO’s Unified Planning Work Program has funded another 70-80 miles of bike lanes and trails to be implemented over the next three years. Just recently, Gov. Scott approved $3.4 million in funding to finalize plans for the Ludlam Trail and this Fall the City of Miami will begin construction on the Overtown Greenway connecting the Culmer and Overtown Metrorail Stations. Whether by the Florida Department of Transportation, Miami-Dade County, or by municipalities, the County’s bicycle network is growing so that more and more residents can have choices when they get around.
