• Bike lanes, white lines, and the MUTCD

    Cutting off bike lanes with solid white lines continues in Delaware. We encourage DelDOT to please consider the striping guidelines found in the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices as equally applicable to bike lanes and shoulders where bicycles (vehicles by law) are permitted to ride. 
    Section 3B.04 – White Lane Line Pavement Markings and Warrants
    Where crossing the lane line markings with care is permitted, the lane line markings shall consist of a normal broken white line. Where crossing the lane line markings is discouraged, the lane line markings shall consist of a normal solid white line.
     Brand new bike lane cut off on Limestone Road in Hockessin
     Porter Road in Bear, NE of Route 72/Wrangle Hill Rd
    We otherwise recognize and thank DelDOT for the many other bike lane installations that were designed to exacting standards, as seen below in Glasgow.
