Innovation in Bike Safety

J.M. Teague Engineering and Planning
Agencies across the United States are showing an increased interest in bicycle signal faces, and many of them have submitted requests to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to experiment with bicycle signal faces. During the past 5 years, the FHWA has approved experiments with bicycle signal faces for a variety of State, county and local governmental agencies, including the following: the City of Denver, CO; the City of Long Beach, CA; the City of Washington, D.C.; the City of Minneapolis, MN; the City of Alexandria, VA; the County of Arlington, VA; the City of Madison, WI; the Oregon Department of Transportation; the County of Clackamas, OR; the City of Canton, OH; the City of Sparks, NV; the City of Chicago, IL; the City of Lakeland, FL; and the City of Ithaca, NY.

In these experiments, the bicycle signal face is a traffic control device that is being used to provide for separate control of the bicycle movement and address one or more of the following situations:
  1. Bicyclist non-compliance with the previous traffic control;
  2. Provide a leading or lagging bicycle interval;
  3. Continue the bicycle lane on the right-hand side of an exclusive turn lane that would otherwise be in non-compliance with Paragraph 6 of Section 9C.04;
  4. Augment the design of a segregated counter-flow bicycle facility;
  5. Provide an increased level of safety by facilitating unusual or unexpected arrangements of the bicycle movement through complex intersections, conflict areas, or signal control.
