Austin bicyclists are about to get a green light that’s just for them.
Over the next couple months Austin’s Transportation Department plans to install special traffic signals at a dozen intersections. About half of them will be downtown. Crews recently completed protected bike lanes on Third Street.
“All the bicycle signals that we are installing are on routes that are major cycle routes that already have protected bike lane infrastructure,” said Nathan Wilkes of Austin Transportation Department. “The protected bike lane network is part of the ‘All Ages and Abilities Network,’ where it’s really for all ages and abilities. Anybody should be able to get out and ride a bicycle.”
