Bicycling Made Easier by Pavement Markings in Redmond and Kirkland l Kirkland Bike Attorney

Comments (0)
As a bicyclist in Redmond and Kirkland, Washington have you ever had problems triggering traffic lights to change?  Well the cities of Redmond and Kirkland have started a new pavement marking program to make your life easier.

The new pavement markings are designed to help Washington bicyclists know where to stop so that the traffic light will "see" or sense you.  A bicycle symbol is paint on the road, and when you stop on it the traffic light is activated.  So you should not have to sit through endless light cycles hoping a car comes up behind you to trip the light.

Kirkland is painting the markings at seven locations between Carillon Point and Juanita.  They will also be located on portions of 150th Avenue NE in Redmond.

Both cities are piloting this project and would like feedback.  To report signals in Kirkland that don't detect bicycles, email at [email protected] or call (425) 587-3800.
