Green Bike Lanes

Green Bike Lane - Photo Small

Green bike lanes are pavement markings used to highlight locations where motorists 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 dotted white lines.

Green bike lanes are currently located on 15th Ave SE by the U of M, on E 16th St south of downtown, on 1st/Blaisdell Aves in south Minneapolis, and on N 7th St by Target Field.
