Following the creation of multiple street-level separated bicycle lanes in Cambridge in recent years, the City has gained experience with the installation and maintenance of the separators (often referred to as flex posts) that are installed between these types of separated bicycle lanes and the adjacent travel or parking lane. There are three primary locations where separators are used: In clear zones, adjacent to travel lanes, and adjacent to parking lanes. While we continue to refine our use of these separators based on the lessons learned, our current policy on the installation of separators can be found in our Guidelines for the Use of Bicycle Lane Separators.
