New street markings include “sharrows,” which show where cars and bicycles share a lane. Green pavement in the bike lane, Kidd said, “is used to increase driver awareness of bicyclist activity.”
It also helps cyclists remember that drivers could be turning right through the bike lane.
There also is a new crosswalk, or “cross-bike,” as Kidd calls it, at South G Street and Division Avenue. It allows cyclists to cross with a signal instead of waiting on a gap in traffic.
To keep pedestrians and cyclists safe, vehicles can only turn right onto Division Avenue from South G Street, Kidd said.
