I went by there recently, and the design seems a bit wonky, requiring a series of pretty sharp turns for cyclists to continue going straight. The idea is right (protected intersection), but the execution seems poor. Highlights the need for better guidance and standards on this.

Looking at the standards from NACTO, this does seem to be a variation, but one they allow. https://nacto.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/NACTO_Dont-Give-Up-at-the-Intersection.pdf

I guess I don't understand the point of this design variation. Seems like just another way to make cycling inconvenient and indirect.
