Bike Signal at NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd & Lloyd

I often get asked what a change like this costs. This one was particularly limited in its expense because the wiring was already there (we replaced an existing vehicular signal that was redundant) and the pole was placed in the exact spot needed for the display.

The length of the green time advance for the bicycle signal is dependent on the eastbound traffic. The bicycle signal westbound is active when the eastbound movement starts and continues when the eastbound vehicles start. Another way to think of this movement is that it mimics the WALK interval for pedestrians on the north crossing of the intersection.
