What do the new markings on Capitol Boulevard mean?
Here is the scoop from the Boise police department:
The bright green rectangles are meant to alert motorists that they are entering a bike lane, and to yield to bicyclists who are in the bike-only lane.
The “right hook” is one of the most common causes of collisions between motorists and bicyclists, so we hope these bright green boxes will bring an extra level of awareness.
The important thing to remember is that this “mixing zone” requires all users to be extra vigilant and respectful.

Trails Benefit Library is Open!
Curious about the economic benefits of trails or events? Wondering about how walking and bicycling features in your community influence your property values?
Headwaters Economics has compiled 90 studies on the impacts of trails in a single library to help community leaders, elected officials, trail users, and others better understand the benefits of trails. The reports are searchable by type of benefit, use, year, and region.
The library—which is free and easy to use—includes topics such as business impacts, property values, public health, and user attitudes.
