The new markings include side-by-side bike lane symbols to denote the passing lane and skip-striping both where the lane widens (and then narrows) and to separate the slow and fast lanes.
Taken on the corner of MLK Blvd. Grand and SE Madison Ave, looking west.
It was great to watch morning commuters fall right in to place; slower riders on the right, speedsters on the left!
When I stopped by to shoot these photos this morning, PDOT traffic engineer Scott Batson was there doing the same. I asked if the city has plans to do any more of these. He said at this point they don’t, but given how well these work and how popular they are I’m sure we’ll see more of them in the future.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
