New bike laws will soon go into effect in North Dakota

FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Three new bike laws that were passed during this year’s North Dakota legislative session will soon go into effect. House Bill 1290 – Overtaking and Passing a Bicycle This law requires vehicles to pass a bicycle with a minimum of 3 feet between the bicyclist and the vehicle. This provides a safer environment for those riding bicycles on the road. Prior to this law, North Dakota was one of only seven states without a safe passing law.

Separated Bike Lanes: Filling the Gaps in Design Guidance

In recent years, many U.S. cities have been installing separated bicycle lanes (SBLs) as part of their nonmotorized transportation networks.

They reduce crash risk, increase safety and comfort, and encourage more people to use bicycles as transportation.

What's red and white and spread across downtown? Pretty soon, transit-only lanes

More than two miles of downtown streets will get a fresh coat of red paint in a move that has nothing to do with the Rockets or Cougars basketball teams. The red, commonly used in many cities to denote a transit-only lane, gradually will come along Travis and Milam as part of a three-phase project to freshen the bus-only lanes managed by Metropolitan Transit Authority. Paint could be spread across four blocks of Travis by fall, though the total project will take up to a year, and up to $1.5 million.
