Does anyone know if these will be buffered or not?
it's not 100% buffered, but most of grand is. here are the design plans: https://data.kcmo.org/Transportation/Fi ... /6phz-6gj8
I counted and a rider going NB from 20th to 5th can expect the lane setup to change 20 times in 15 blocks. In some places the design changes twice in the same block.
It's certainly better but the city came up with a plan that's going to get complaints almost immediately.
My favorite is in some blocks cars cross the bike lane before the corner and turn right from the right of the bike lane but on some they turn right from the left of the bike lane. That's going to create so many problems as drivers try to figure out where to go to turn. Consistency would help a lot here.
Protected lane. Do it.
