BTV Bike Network: Green Intersections & Super-Sharrows

super_sharrow_and_green_intersection_copy.jpg

 

We, the undersigned, call on the City of Burlington to use super-sharrows on all shared-lane streets in the center city area.  We also ask that the City use the "green intersection" treatment that was recently approved by VTrans at all major intersections in the center city area that include bike lanes.

Extensive use of green paint will both improve bicyclist safety and visibility and make navigating the city by bike much more intuitive, as bicyclists will simply "follow the green."  Green intersections and super-sharrows will also improve car-bike interactions, as it will highlight for motorists where to expect bicyclists and channel bike traffic into more predictable patterns.
