Charlottesville’s first buffered bike lanes to be painted on Rose Hill Drive in early April 2014

The results of a yearlong collaboration between the City of Charlottesville and neighborhood stakeholders will soon be apparent on Rose Hill Drive. New lane striping is scheduled to occur during the week of March 31, 2014 (weather permitting) to coincide with Burley Middle School’s Spring Break schedule and minimize disruption to student drop off procedures.

New lane stripes are the first phase of alterations that address comments from neighbors about vehicular speeds and disconnected bicycle and pedestrian facilities on Rose Hill Drive. The new striping pattern will provide a painted buffer zone between the bike lanes and travel lanes from Preston Avenue to Madison Avenue. The project will also complete the bike lanes leading up to major intersections and adds crosswalks at key locations.

Buffered bike lanes create extra separation between bikes and moving cars, improving safety and comfort for cyclists. The resulting route can be used by a range of cyclists with varying skill levels.
