    If there is room, put physically protected bike lanes. If there is not room for PHYSICALLY PROTECTED bike lanes, do not even bother. Best design practice says a road with this volume must have physically protected bike lanes.

    There are parallel routes that we can and should focus on making great bike boulevards.

    Unprotected Bike lanes don't belong on streets where the volume of cars are high, as is the case on South Dixie. NO bike lanes, unless they are physically protected. Otherwise, no one is going to ride in them.

    Door zone bike lanes are dumb. They won't be used by ANYONE except the most confident of road cyclists. That is a waste of money, waste of street space, and it undermines the safety of the project by inducing cars to drive faster than than could otherwise.

    NO bike lanes unless they are physically protected bike lanes, please.

    The context needs to be taken into account. The South Dixie road diet plan is a very good plan with plenty of community input. Follow it. FDOT and MPO should not impose top down solutions, such as insisting that the entire US 1 corridor contain bike lanes.

    Got hit on a Saturday afternoon by a drunk driver, hit and run, turning on to my street, Greyson heading south on Dixie. Car was totaled and I was hospitalized for a concussion.

    How about the first stage of light rail system in WPB connecting Good Samaritan, Northwood Village, Clematis Street, Brightline Sta., City Place, Conv. Center, Norton Museum, as far south as Forest Hill.

    Left lane suddenly merges into right causing long traffic back-ups during rush hour. Suggest realigning roadway to allow left lane to remain.

    Bike lanes shared with traffic and a bike line in the door zone next to parked cars are dangerous. Create protected bike lanes wherever possible along US 1.

    Need pedestrian crossing and/or traffic light. There is a popular restaurant on this corner of Dixie & Kanuaga and many patrons park on the east side of Dixie and walk to the west side. The traffic signal on Flamingo is not routinely used by pedestrians

    Invite the use of public transit by removing conflict between buses and vulnerable road users.

    The following link offers a good discussion:

    A dangerous intersection for vulnerable road users.

    Ideally a protected intersection would be put in place (see slide 101 here http://www.fdot.gov/roadway/CSI//W3/D1-ITS-and-Complete-Streets.pdf)

    A bike signal could be considered as well: https://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov/resources/interim_approval/ia16/

    Install a Bicycle Footrest. Maybe even with an encouraging statement such as "Thank you for riding!" printed on it.

    Give bikes a green light! A separate bicycle signal would give bikes a head start traveling across Palmetto Park Rd, increasing their safety.

    Such a treatment has been approved by the Federal Highway Administration and this intersection is a perfect use case.

    Make a showcase of this intersection to invite walking and bicycle riding!

    With City Hall and the library to the west of this intersection and Mizner Park and the beach to the east, this is a critical intersection for vulnerable road users.

    Ideally a protected intersection would be put in place (see slide 101 here http://www.fdot.gov/roadway/CSI//W3/D1-ITS-and-Complete-Streets.pdf)

    If a roundabout or other intersection were considered, "bicycle lanes should be terminated at bypass ramps to access the
    sidewalk prior to entering the circulatory roadway. Bicycle riders have the option to
    “command the lane” and travel through the roundabout in the circulatory roadway, or to
    divert onto the sidewalk and cross the intersection along pedestrian paths..." as seen in section 3.6 in the Florida Intersection
    Design Guide
    2015 (http://www.fdot.gov/roadway/FIDG-Manual/FIDG.pdf)
    yield to pedestrians).

    The intersection of NE2nd Street and US1 should be made

    Street beautification and trees for pedestrians need to be added here. Safer bike lanes and traffic calming strategies also need to be put into place.

    There are too many accidents and too many cars driving in excessive speeds. Please add traffic calming strategies here in addition to safe bike lanes and trees to keep pedestrians cool.

    Coming from a bike friendly country, people over here are afraid to bike ! Use dedicated lanes and in a different color to increase safety and the number of people biking (and awareness) will go up by itself

    It would be beautiful if the County added corridor entrance sign. Also, name US1 through Palm Beach something more fun and add branding and consistent shade/landscaping/wayfinding signage/free North/South bus. Make it "a thing" tourists travel here to do.

    Road too wide, sidewalks too small! Dangerous to walk - try eating at Havana's outdoor counter sometime!
