What's Happening Downtown

The new “road diet” configuration on Main St. from Ann Arbor Trail to Ann Arbor Road has reduced the road to one lane northbound and one lane southbound, with one turn left lane.

 

With the changes, it’s important that both motorists and bicyclists know the “rules of the road” to share Main St.


Bike Safety

 

Always...

  • Obey all traffic signs and signals.
  • Ride with traffic, not against it, including on sidewalks and paths.
  • Watch for turning vehicles at intersections and driveways.
  • Use your hands to signal when you plan to turn, slow down, or stop.
  • Wear a properly fitted helmet.
  • Yield the right-of-way to pedestrians on sidewalks or crosswalks.
  • Give an audible warning before you pass people on a sidewalk or bicyclists on the road or path.

Never...

  • Ride after dark without a white headlight, a red rear light, and bright and reflective clothing.
  • Ride distracted, including talking or texting on your phone or listening to headphones.
