Protected Intersection

A protected intersection is a method to accommodate a separated bikeway at intersections and includes the following features: corner refuge islands, marked bicycle crossings parallel to pedestrian crosswalks, two-stage left turns for bicyclists, and free right turns for bicyclists. Protected intersections also enhance pedestrian safety by reducing the roadway crossing distance and reducing speeds of right turning vehicles.
