CDOT installed the flexible bollards on the Kinzie Street protected bike lane in Chicago. The photo below by Brandon Souba comes from Steven Vance’s blog Steven Can Plan. You can see the design is very similar to the protected bike lanes I have ridden in New York City and Washington, D.C. How about we all chip in and buy some bollards for the planned regular bike lanes S 2nd Street in Milwaukee and turn them into protected bike lanes. I’ll buy four or five of them if the City will paint the buffer and put them in. Anybody else wanna ante up?
Below is the video I took riding in the bollard protected bike lanes in Washington, D.C. Note the video below takes a bit to buffer. If you have problems, don’t wait too long, just try refreshing your screen. Click on the video image, press play and wait.
