- On 15th Street, results show that the use of signs indicating that bicyclists should use the pedestrian signals is not effective. Bicyclists should use either the motor vehicle signal indications or bicycle-specific signals depending on intersection specifics.
- To help bicyclists understand the traffic control that applies to them, the application of bike signals should be consistent along a particular facility.
- the appropriateness of mixing zones depends strongly on turning volumes; at intersections with high volumes of turning vehicles, separating bicycle movements from turning vehicles through protected bicycle signal phases is likely to be most appropriate.
- While this research did not examine colored pavement, we nonetheless recommend the use of colored pavement specifically for conflict areas rather than for entire bicycle facilities.
There are also specific recommendations.
On 15th they recommend adding bicycle signal heads, flashing turn signals for motorists and green pavement at the conflict areas. They also recommend improving the pavement conditions for southbound cyclists through repaving, widening, and/or removing the gutter and improving signal timing.
On Penn, they recommend improving the signs, signals and markings; adding bicycle-only through phases and signals; and improving the pavement markings to show cyclists where to stop.
At NH/U street they recommend restrictin trucks making eastbound right turns; increasing the street cross-section width at the southwest New Hampshire intersection entrance to make room for the bike lane; adding green paint; adding a push button for cyclists or adding a bike phase to every light cycle; improve visibility of the signal heads; and modify the signal phasing.
