Description

This is a very dangerous stretch of road for cyclists because the bike lane and right turn lane intersect. I bike it daily and have seen two accidents and numerous near accidents between bicyclists and motorists. Last week my husband's rib was broken when he was struck by a car while biking here. When we returned to the scene to look at it several days later, we found another biker rolling on the ground after having just been hit by a car.

1) Flashing lights and signs are needed here
2) bright plastic road dividers should be installed, to limit the area that cars are able to move into the bike lane
3) and/or more permanent bike lane dividers should be installed to protect cyclists

Thank you for consideration and assistance.
