The bike lane on Penny Drive is getting a facelift that will make it safer by making it more visible. The entire surface is being coated with a reflective green compound. A white version of the same compound will be used to restripe all Penny Drive crosswalks.
Work will take place Saturday, Aug. 17, and Sunday, Aug. 18, between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. It’s necessary to work at night because the compound won’t adhere to the pavement if the ambient temperature is above 75 degrees. The equipment used to apply the compound will generate a small amount of noise – measured at 85 to 90 decibels right at the machine.
Besides improving Penny Drive’s bike lane and crosswalks, we’re upgrading pedestrian lighting and trimming foliage that obscures signs and connections to pathways.
