Contraflow bike lanes give bikes their own lane to go against the flow of traffic on a one-way street. So on a westbound one-way street, both bikes and cars can go west using the regular lane, but bikes can also go east using the contraflow bike lane. Adding contraflow bike lanes helps create a more complete bike network off main roads, to make cycling a more accessible option for more people.
Come out to support the following contraflow bike lanes!
