What a Left-side Cycletrack Might Look LikePosted by Steve in Infrastructure, News on February 22nd, 2012 – 1 Comment
Option 1 for Williams Ave presents the most ambitious proposal for Williams Ave to date, with a cycletrack-ish bikeway running on the left side of the street
One of the challenges with either left or right-aligned cycletracks is how to make turns across traffic. In PBOT’s proposal, there would be right-turn turn boxes, but only at 1/3rd of the intersections. I was curious about how this would work, so Nick Falbo sent over this video from Steve Vance which demonstrates Chicago’s latest left-side protected bike lane. It sure is helpful to see this sort of implementation in another American city.
