I’ve been closely following the bike facilities construction that began last weekend through downtown San Jose, California.
The San Jose Mercury News reports on the plans to “make downtown San Jose the most bike-friendly downtown in the Bay Area.” Besides the general pavement improvements, bike lane striping and (eventually) green lanes on San Fernando Street, the city will install four inch rubberized “barriers” on 4th Street.
We have those barriers on the Beach Street cycleway in Santa Cruz. I think I like them better than the flexible plastic posts or bollards I’ve seen in some places. This video shows what they look like.
