Green Bike Lanes

Green bike lanes are pavement markings used to highlight locations where motorists frequently merge across or turn across a bike lane. To draw attention and increase safety at these locations, bike lanes are colored green to alert motorists that they must yield to thru bicyclists. Green bike lanes are marked with a solid green background, bounded by solid white lines.

Green bike lanes are currently located on Humboldt Avenue at Locust Street and Center Street.
