Say hello to safer and more visible bike lanes! The City of Rancho Cucamonga is implementing green bike lanes through grant funding to help promote biking as a transportation method and enhance safety for bicyclists and motorists. Thanks to the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee grant, this enhancement project will mark bikes lanes with green thermoplastic in potential conflict areas where vehicles and bicycles may meet, such as approaching intersections and right turn pockets.
Green bike lanes allow bicyclists to feel safer when approaching a conflict area, where weaving typically occurs, while also increasing awareness of bicyclists to other motorists.
Initial improvements were made at the intersection of Base Line Road and Carnelian Street. After visible success, drivers and bicyclists can now find these improvements expanded along Base Line Road, Haven Avenue, Jersey Boulevard, and 6th Street as a visible representation of the City to commitment to active transportation and Healthy RC. Just another reminder to share the road and keep an eye out in the Green Zone!
