Foto Friday: Buffered Bike Lanes on Mira Mesa Boulevard

Last month, Joe Punsalan noticed that buffered bike lanes had shown up on Mira Mesa Boulevard

If the vehicle travel lane width was reduced with the implementation of this buffered bike lane, I hope the city is taking active steps to measure vehicle speeds and is considering reducing the speed limit from 50 mph. At 50 mph, unintentional driver errors could be deadly.

Steven Vance from Streetsblog Chicago thought that a concrete barrier to separate the bicycle traffic from the motor vehicle traffic could be a solution.

Perhaps Caltrans and the City could join forces and place a bulk order for Jersey Barriers.
