Over the last few months, the City of Tucson has upgraded its first “crossbike” (read the original post here) intersection at Swan Road and Third Street to make it safer for cyclists.
The city improved the approaches on both sides of the intersection to protect cyclists from cars turning right off of Swan Road.
Crossing signs telling cyclists when it is safe to cross have also been added.
Lastly, the city added additional pavement markings and improved the signal activations for cyclists.
Cyclist Alan Solot, who rides through the intersection said in an email alerting me to the changes that the intersection works really well and removes the concerns he had when the original installation went in.
Check out the video above to see the how the intersection looks now and compare it to the original video below.
