  1. Bicycle lanes are on‐street areas for bicycle use designated by painted lane stripes, bicycle pavement markings and signs.
  2. Enhanced bicycle lanes may include green color and a buffer space between bikes and cars.
  3. Shared lanes are designated by Shared Lane pavement markings (sharrows) in the travel lane, and by signs. Bicyclists and motorists share the same space.
  4. Traffic‐actuated traffic signals that do not currently detect bicycles along project corridors will be modified to add bicycle detection.
