Kansas City has a new “bike box”designed to improve safety and give cyclists a head start against motorists. The big, bright green painted box is at 11th and Petticoat Lane (Main Street), where 11th Street jogs and crosses the streetcar line. The painted striping is almost finished but additional decals and signage will be added. Deb Ridgway, standing in the bike box, is Kansas City’s bicycle pedestrian coordinator.
