'Bike boxes' aim to keep cyclists safe - Columbus Dispatch
BY TIM DOULIN THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH Part of one of the most popular Columbus routes for bicyclists is being upgraded to include pavement markings at a key intersection that will help bikes avoid collisions with turning vehicles. The so-called "bike boxes," pavement markings in the shape of a box, are to be installed next year on Milton Avenue on both sides of the intersection at W. North Broadway. When the traffic signal is red, bicyclists will be allowed to ride past stopped vehicles on Milton to wait in the box at the head of the line until the light changes. More story...
