Traffic lanes go green for bicyclists

Seattle Department of Transportation crews painted the first of Seattle green bike lanes on the northwest corner of the intersection at East Green Lake Way North and North 50th Street, to the left of the right-turn lane where motorists might not expect to see bicyclists. Another green lane was installed at the south end of the Fremont Bridge, at Fremont Avenue North and North Florentia Street.The green bike lanes are put into existing bike lanes to raise motorist awareness of bicyclists at points where their paths cross. The city plans to install the lanes at nearly a dozen locations over the next three years.[[In-content Ad]]
