BikeLaneSymbol Guidelines

Abikelaneshouldbepaintedwithstandardpavementsymbolstoinform
bicyclists and motorists of the presence of the bike lane. The standard
pavement symbolsare one of two bicycle symbols(or the words“BIKE
LANE”)and adirectional arrow. (SeeFigure13.) Thesesymbolsshould
be painted on the far side of each intersection. (See Figure 14.) Addi-
tional stencils may be placed on long, uninterrupted sections of
roadway. All pavement markings are to be white and reflectorized.

The Preferential Lane Symbol (“diamond”) previously used as a pave-
ment marking and on signsto show preferential use by different classes
of vehiclesshould no longer beused for bikeways, dueto theconfusion
with the use of the diamond for High Occupant Vehicle (HOV) lanes,
and the misinterpretation of the diamond as a two-way arrow. These
symbols should be eliminated through normal maintenance practices.
