Minot will be adding its first designated bike lanes this spring as part of a chip seal project on 16th Street Northwest.
The bike lanes will be added to 16th Street NW between 21st Avenue and 30th Avenue, along with a vehicle speed reduction from 40 miles per hour to 30 miles per hour along that same stretch of roadway.
The new bike lanes will tie into existing multi-use paths that run along 21st Avenue Northwest and north of 30th Avenue Northwest.
This stretch of 16th Street NW currently has four driving lanes that are 12 feet wide. The new design would change that to two 12-foot driving lanes with a 14-foot center turn lane and 5-foot bicycle lanes on the outside edge of the roadway. With the roadway set for a chip seal project this year, new striping and markings will be added to create the bike lanes by reallocating the existing space.
