Summary: A Dutch Junction and green bike lanes were installed as a part of the rehabilitation project for Lots 16 and 54, located at the Bizzell and Ross Streets intersection. The intersection design, called a Dutch Junction, adds space at crossings for bike lanes and pulls the stop sign for cars further back from the intersection, increasing visibility for drivers and improving safety for people walking and bicycling.

The bike lanes were created using a solar luminescent paint that stores solar energy to increase visibility at night, establishing the nation's first glow-in-the-dark green bike lanes. The lanes create a designated space on the street for a person riding a bicycle that is physically separated from traffic and pedestrian activity.

The resulting outcome creates a clear and sensible environment for users on foot, on bicycles or in cars and provides more time and space for everyone to see and react to one another.
