AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2021

Project Category: Bikeability

Description: As part of its mission to make biking safer, the League of Michigan Bicyclists set out to test a new style of lane separators meant to protect cyclists from vehicle traffic. The League did a demonstration project, setting up hundreds of wave delineators -- arc-shaped metal pieces that create the appearance of waves when placed end to end. They also used narrow traffic cones to separate bike lanes from the roadway. During the pop-up, project organizers collected feedback from people using the protected lanes. They report the demonstration's success has spurred other cities in the region are to undertake similar projects.
