Description

A bike box would be great where the northbound bike lane on Prospect Street ends at Trumbull.

Why?
*There is a high volume of right turns across the bike lane, leading to a high risk of a right hook incident.
*The bike lane ends, so bicyclists need to start merging out into the lane anyway.
*This entire intersection is being rebuilt, so marginal cost of striping a bike box will be lower than any other intersection in the entire city.
