Salt Lake City Will Have First Protected Bike Intersection in the U.S. →

Jenn Stanley, writing for Next City:

Unlike other cities that currently have or are building protected bike lanes, this is the first time a city in the U.S. is building a fully protected intersection.

The city hopes that in addition to aiding cyclists, the new lane will increase local commerce. The area will also feature murals by local artists.

Sounds like a very smart move. Check this video detailing the intersection:
