Bike Infrastructure

The City of Milwaukee has over 85 miles of bike lanes, including buffered lanes, green bike lanes and shared lane markings. The City also has miles of paved trails for bike use including the Hank Aaron State Trail, the Milwaukee County Oak Leaf Trail and the City's Beerline Trail. Below you'll find ways Milwaukee is improving biking throughout the City!

Please wait while we gather your results.

Bike Boulevards

The bike boulevard traffic calming techniques reduce speeding, which improves safety for pedestrians, bike riders, and drivers.

Bike Lanes

Milwaukee Department of Public Works has a comprehensive network of bike lanes and routes for Milwaukee residents to use and enjoy.

Bridge Plating

Plating makes crossing bridges with open metal decking safer for people riding bikes.

Buffered Bike Lanes

A buffered bike lane is similar to a regular bike lane, but also includes a marked buffer between the bike lane and adjacent travel lanes.

Protected Bike Lanes

Protected bike lanes use physical dividers to separate people biking from people driving and walking. These exclusive bike lanes combine the user experience of a trail with the on-street design of a traditional bike lane.

Shared Lane Markings

Shared Lane Marking (sometimes called sharrows) are street markings that are installed in a few locations on Milwaukee streets as an awareness tool for drivers, bike riders, and pedestrians.


Along with miles of bike lanes, Milwaukee has numerous off-street bike paths that run throughout the city including the Beerline Trail, KK River Trail and the Oak Leaf Trail.
