CORAL SPRINGS, FL – Green-colored bike lanes have arrived in Coral Springs.

They’ve been installed as part of the road-widening project on Turtle Creek Drive and NW 62nd Avenue, between State Road 7 and Bland Road, that has added 4.5-foot bike lanes in each direction as well as reconstructed sidewalks, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.

“Green-colored bike lane surfacing is a safety feature meant to provide heightened awareness of areas of the roadway where vehicles and bicyclists may cross paths and caution must be used,” said Guillermo Canedo, communications manager for the state transportation department’s District Four office, which includes Coral Springs, in an email.

He added the surfacing is made of “a composite material that provides a high-visibility reflective and textured surface.”

These green surfaces, also referred to as green pattern pavement, are now standard features in road improvement projects across Florida that include adding or refurbishing bike lanes, Canedo said.

As for the road construction on Turtle Creek Drive and NW 62nd Avenue, the $1.2 million project, which started last summer, is expected to be completed in early 2021.
