The N Street protected bike lane covers a 17-block stretch in downtown Lincoln. It includes bike-specific signals and landscaped medians as wide as nine feet. The redesign debuted two weeks ago, according to the Journal Star, and motorists are still figuring out how the whole thing works.

The bike lane helps fill a "critical link" in the city's 128-mile trail network, according to the Downtown Lincoln Association. The project was completed with help from the Great Plains Trail Network, which provided $340,000, or about 10 percent of the $3.5 million cost.

Nicely done!
