Frequently Asked Questions

What are Buffered Bike Lanes?

A buffered bike lane is similar to a regular bike lane, but also includes a marked buffer between the bike lane and adjacent travel lanes. Buffered bike lanes are wide enough to provide adequate maneuvering room for cyclists. The buffer is needed to prevent motorists from using the lane as a travel lane. The buffer is placed between the bike lane and travel lane. The buffer is marked with two white lines to indicate the bike lane is a special use lane for bicyclists, and motorists must yield to traffic in the lane before merging or turning across the lane.

Are lanes being added to this project?

No. Capacity is not being added to the project. The scope of the project is to provide multi-modal facilities to the corridor including buffered bike lanes and sidewalks.

Will there be any lane closures during construction?

Lane closures will be necessary at various times during construction. The public will be notified in advance of any lane closures.

Will I be able to access the businesses along US 41 within the project limits during construction?

Access to businesses will be maintained during construction. There are times that access may be limited to one lane with a flagging operation in place. The contractor will try to minimize these occurrences as much as possible and try to schedule those operations at night/overnight.

Is my driveway being modified?

Driveways that are being modified have been coordinated with each property owner already.

Are the medians changing?

An analysis and design of the corridor is on-going and all median openings will be modified.
