BICYCLE FACILITY DESIGN REVIEW/BIKE LANE
| Next section
A bike lane is the portion of a roadway designated by striping, signing and pavement markings for the preferential use of bicyclists. Generally, a bike lane is one way and bicycles travel in the same direction as traffic. A bike lane should provide enough road pavement for a bicyclist to ride comfortably between the adjacent travel lane and the curb and gutter or on-road parking. In general in the U.S., bike lanes are on the right-side of the road although alternative configurations are possible.
