Separated bike lanes on Lineberry Road

Bike Lane Projects

We are dedicated to improving bicycle and pedestrian connectivity in Raleigh.

We are installing new bike lanes throughout Raleigh. 

The City's BikeRaleigh program is working to create a network of safe bike lanes throughout the City to enable cyclist of all comfort levels to use their bike as a means of transportation. 

This page lists projects that we are currently working on. 

Work is Underway

Crews have started installing the new bicycle pavement markings to the streets listed below. 

Night Work

To help minimize traffic impacts, the bulk of this work will be done between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. Monday through Saturday, and pre-markings will be done during the daytime hours.

There is minimal construction noise associated with this work. Crews will use construction lighting directed at the road and a torch to create the heat needed to have the thermoplastic bike markings properly adhere to the pavement.

Vertical bollards help to keep cyclist safe by delineating and creating a physical separation between the bike lanes and the vehicular lanes of traffic.
