Arizona's second largest city, Tucson, is committed to building up the bicycle infrastructure. Ruby Lake Glass installed their first Arizona installation on a high traffic and bicycle street going northbound at the intersection of Mount Street and Glenn Street. Working with Ann Chenecka, program coordinator for the city's bicycle and pedestrian program, this intersection was chosen to give drivers a visual delineation from the car lane and the bike lane, creating a complete street lay out.
The Texas University has improved it's campus with glow in the dark bike lanes! Installed on the intersection at Bizzell and Ross street, these green bike lanes are made up of color coated glass and solar luminescent paint that stores solar energy to increase visibility at night. Safety is the priority on this campus, combining protected bike lanes with eye popping color visibility, day and night.
Google used color coated glass aggregate to match their existing Google Green on the new campus wide bike lane installation. The glass aggregate can be seen on bike lanes along North Shoreline Blvd and Shorebird Way.
The city of Ogden rebuilt Grant Avenue between 20th and 22nd Streets to accommodate pedestrians and bikes. This was a large project rebuilding with large new protected bike on both sides of the road. For added protected and visibility, on 22nd street in front of the Church of Latter Day Saints green bike lanes were installed to keep the continuity of safety through more than just Grant Street.
"...For durability and safety, a high friction surface course with the 'color of newly laid asphalt' was specified. Ruby Lake Glass brought forward the innovative solution of black tinted, environmentally friendly, recycled glass aggregate..."
Sammamish Washington is leading the nation in sustainability and safety as the first city to install color coated green glass in bike lanes. The installation is part of a city wide bike lane program. The skid resistant, fade resistant bright color glass is installed on Southeast 20th Street.
