Experimental Cycletrack is a First in Portland

Very cool! I’d think if this is successful, you could move the bus stop INTO the parked car lane and avoid any potential bike/bus conflict. You could have a little island with a couple benches and maybe a tree or two.

As pointed out earlier, the new conflict will be between peds and bikes as peds use the bike lane to position themselves to cross Broadway. I wonder if there will be any reminders to peds at crosswalks and between blocks to stay out of the bike lane and watch for bikes.

Unfortunately, this sort of caution signage is not utilized much in Portland. Painting the entire thing green would be amazing, but I understand it raises costs.
