Waterborne Polymer Technology for Green Bike Lanes

July 27, 2022

The demand for bike lanes is constantly growing, and municipalities are seeking durable, affordable, cost-efficient, and eco-friendly options for improving their intramodal infrastructure. Waterborne polymer technology offers cities a new way to go faster, go farther, and go green with their bike lanes. For over a decade, cities in the United States have seen a dramatic increase in cycling and bike lanes, with increase in bicycle commuting. Large metropolitan cities have seen an even greater increase in cycling than average, with commuting by bike up significantly during the morning rush hour. This trend was bolstered by the COVID-19 pandemic, as evidenced by soaring bike sales. Waterborne two-component acrylic-epoxy hybrid technology is a new solution for green bike lane markings that can help city and state transportation officials address the issues of speed of application, return to service of designated bike lanes, and with favorable cost-performance in order to expand their networks of designated bicycle lanes.

Learning Objectives: To develop an understanding of a novel cost-performance approach to the coloring of green bike lanes for improved bicyclist, motorist and pedestrian safety in urban areas.
