Portland-based planner and designer Nick Falbo recently proposed a new idea for bike infrastructure call the protected intersection. The basic concept addresses the issue of a gap in protected bike lanes at intersections. Basically, a protected bike lane is great until you reach an intersection, and then you’re dealing with cars up close and personal. However, with a protected bike lane, Falbo has proposed a unique arrangement for keeping traffic flowing and bicycles and pedestrians protected. The idea has Dutch origins, but it reworks the concept slightly to make more sense on U.S. streets. Check out the full idea in the video below. I’d love to see this, and more protected bike lanes for that matter, catch on soon! Via Bike Portland.
