Are Protected Bike lanes An Improvement?
Protected bike lanes are bike lanes with a physical/vertical separation between the bike lane and vehicle lane. They have been installed in hundreds of cities across the US, but not yet in Santa Fe.
This type of bike lane has been shown to improve safety and comfort for all road users and especially people biking.
The Santa Fe MPO, with funding support from AARP, will be conducting a temporary pop-up protected bike lane for the community to try out this type of infrastructure on October 9th and 10th. The MPO will be collecting some data including about how the public responds to the event.
