Walk in Roll Westland Bicycle and Safety Campaign

About

Riding bicycles is a great way to get around in the City of Westland.  It provides exercise and an easy way to get from place to place.  The City of Westland wants to help people understand the "rules of the road" while driving and bicycling on the City of Westland's shared and non-shared bicycle lanes.

It starts by understanding that everyone is responsible for safety while on the road.  Everyone's goal is to get home safe and sound every day.  Following our tips and knowing the rules will help make that happen.

Walk and Roll Westland has more information about the City of Westland's bike lanes; what type of lanes there are and where they are being installed at.

Bicycle Lanes

There are two main types of lanes being used by the City of Westland; dedicated bike lanes and sharrow lanes

  • Dedicated bike lanes, which can be unbuffered, buffered, and protected are lanes that appear on one or both sides of the road specifically for bicycle use.  Bike Lanes Identifiers and Information (PDF) provides information and examples of signage and pavement markings for dedicated bike lanes.
  • Sharrow lanes, or "shared" lanes are when the road is marked to be "shared" between bicycle, moving vehicle traffic, and parked vehicles.  Sharrow Lanes Identifiers and Information (PDF) provides information and examples of signage and pavement markings for sharrow lanes.
