Rickenbacker Causeway to provide a safety improvement for Bicyclists


The Public Works and Waste Management Department will be modifying the pavement markings on the Bear Cut Bridge, William Powell Bridge and West Bridge of the Rickenbacker Causeway to provide a safety improvement. The marked separation between motor vehicles and the bicycle lanes will be upgraded to a double white line with the left of the two lines incorporating vibratory ridges. This will have the combined effect of reinforcing the prohibition of motor vehicles from entering the bicycle lanes as well as providing a vibrating effect to alert drifting vehicles. This work is scheduled to commence Monday, May 21, at approximately 9:00 AM, weather permitting. Mainline Closure: partial croadway closure will be in effect during the insatllation of the pavement marking.

 PLEASE ADVISE US IF YOU WISH FOR YOUR NAME TO BE REMOVED FROM THIS DISTRIBUTION LIST.  THANK YOU
The above information is subject to change if the contractor's schedule is altered due to unexpected circumstances.
