It happened in the run-up to St. Patrick’s Day, but the bright green paint in the Lincoln Street bike lane was just a coincidence. It’s actually the result of a pilot program in which the thermoplastic paint was intended to increase visibility in the northbound bike lane.
The news couldn’t come at a better time, as vehicle vs. bicycle crashes are becoming more and more common in Savannah, and all over.
Investing in bicycle lanes aligns with the City’s “Savannah Forward” Strategic Plan in its promotion of infrastructure. The expenditure is funded by the Mobility & Parking fund.
