Buffered Bike Lane

Buffered Bike Lane - Photo Small

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. The purpose of a buffered bike lane is to provide extra elbow room for bicyclists to increase safety.

The buffer is placed between the bike lane and travel lane The buffer is marked with white chevrons to indicate that no vehicles are allowed to travel in the buffered area.

Buffered bike lanes are currently located on 1st Ave S between E 40th and 33rd Sts and on Fremont Ave N between N Plymouth and Lowry Aves.
