Inventory of Protected Green Lanes
The simple bike lane, the stripe of white paint that creates a space for riding on the road, is getting a makeover in cities across the U.S. The improved space, called a “green lane,” adds physical separation between moving cars and bikes, such as a curb, parked cars or plastic posts. Between 1874 and 2011, only 62 of these facilities were built nationwide. A new inventory relelase by the Green Lane Project in December 2012 shows that this number will nearly double to 102 protected green lanes on the ground in 32 U.S. cities by the end of 2012. Building on this momentum, the U.S. is scheduled to add another 100 green lanes in 2013. View the full press release.
