City Adds Color to Bike Lane Conflict Areas
Green coloring has been added to the bicycle lane on E. Johnson Street through the Pinckney Street intersection. There have been several bicyclist-motorist crashes at this intersection, where either the motorist was crossing E. Johnson northbound through stopped traffic and did not anticipate a bicyclist in the bike lane, or a motorist on E. Johnson made a left turn without looking for and yielding to a bicyclist in the bike lane. The green color provides a reminder to motorists to look for bicyclists when crossing E. Johnson or when making a left turn at Pinckney Street, and serves as a reminder to bicyclists to watch for these conflicts as well.
