[ARCHIVED] NEW IN SHOREWOOD: Advisory Bike Lanes Launch

This resurfacing project and change to the street design, while new, should be no more difficult than learning how to use a traffic circle or roundabout.

Essentially, cars share a single traffic lane, so as a driver, when you see another car coming toward you traveling in the opposite direction, each car will briefly merge into the bike lane after yielding to bicyclists. Once the cars pass each other, resume driving in the traffic lane. Just remember ABL:

A – ASSESS what is happening around you (note parked cars, cyclists, and oncoming traffic). If a car approaches: 

B – BEAR right to briefly merge into the bike lane (after checking and yielding to bicyclists), then:

L – LANE it up! Return to the traffic lane traveling no more than 25 MPH

You already do this on residential streets not wide enough for parked cars and two way traffic, so think of it this way, just look at yielding to bicyclists too! For more information, please visit the Village’s website at www.villageofshorewood.org/edgewoodABL
