Bicycle Detection at N Winning Way/N Williams/I-5 South On-Ramp

On my way to the Maintenance yard I was constantly getting delayed by this signal. I talked to a few friends who mentioned it was a reason they stayed on N Interstate Avenue as an alternate route, but one of the things the City needs to do is to make cycling more attractive for multiple routes, especially ones that are heavily travelled.
So we put in this loop detector to provide some advance notice to the signal, just like we do for cars, buses, and trucks.

The first picture shows the detection at the stop bar which has always been there. It's not quite in the best spot, which was one of the other reasons for this advance detector.
Special thanks to Kevin Lee for sharing the pictures.
