Sonoma County Transportation and Public Works has kicked off National Bike Month with road maintenance and new construction zone signage that will benefit drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians. New signage will warn drivers and bicyclists when a bike lane will be closed ahead, and remind folks to share the road.
This Spring, Transportation and Public Works is trimming vegetation on a number of roads with bike lanes, that serve as major connectors and popular family routes. Vegetation trimming and other road maintenance activities may require staging on the side of the road, closing a bike lane, or closing a road lane.
When a bike lane is closed, drivers and bicyclists will likely be directed to share a lane. Each year Transportation and Public Works trims vegetation in the Right-of-Way to preserve space for safe travel, and maintain visibility for safety. We partner with Cal Fire, which trims vegetation for fire suppression. This collaboration increases the number of miles that are maintained, while decreasing the cost to the County.
