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.

The Santa Fe MPO, with funding support from AARP, conducts temporary pop-up protected bike lanes around the city for the community to try out this type of infrastructure.
