2013 Protected Bike Lanes

Organization: City of Memphis, TN

Year: 2013

Amount: $17,842

Type: Bike Routes/Lanes

PeopleForBikes’ grant will be used to supplement the installation of buffers on new bike lanes and to retrofit existing lanes, colored intersection treatments and vertical delineators in order to demonstrate the nature and function of protected bike lanes prior to the creation of planned capital construction projects. Some funds will additionally go to creating and distributing materials to educate people on the new bike lanes, media campaign, PSAs, as well as fund the purchase of a bicycle counter to track and evaluate the facility.
