City of Redding improvements for your trips by bicycle

Have you noticed these City of Redding improvements for your bike commute?  These improvements are planned for implementation for this fall, including:

  • Through bike lane treatment on eastbound Cypress approach to Parkview with some buffered bike lanes on Cypress. On the approach to the intersection there will be a through bike lane, double skip striping with green paint to highlight conflict zones where vehicle cross the bike lane to the right turn pocket.  Also westbound bike lanes to just prior to the Pine intersection.
  • Bike Box and Green Markings – Redding’s First! Northbound Hartnell to Cypress – through bike lane treatment with double skip stripes, green markings to highlight conflict zone and a “two-stage queue bike box” treatment for safety and ease in making left turns.  How do you use a bike box?  Check out this video for a fun description of how they work.
  • Eastbound Hartnell at Bechelli bike lane with double skip stripes and green to highlight the conflict zone
  • Westbound Hartnell at Bechelli shared right turn lane and through bike lane treatment
  • Southbound Railroad Ave at Buenaventura through bike lane treatment improvements to reduce right hook conflicts
  • Segment of Hartnell from Cypress to Bechelli buffered bicycle lanes in some places.
  • Quartz Hill Road from Benton to Market Street road diet to a single lane in each direction with bike lane buffers and improvements to the bicycle approach to intersections as well as parking.
