Check out this bike crossing in Portland, Oregon. The Art of Placemaking tipped us to this one in a recent piece about moving people around a city: “The heart of a livable city is the efficient and free movement of people.” This bike lane in Portland is located at the end of a major dedicated bike/recreation corridor (Kinda like the Beargrass Trail?) where it empties out onto city streets (Kinda like Grinstead and Lexington?). The signal allows a biker to press a button, stopping traffic in all directions, so diagonal movement of bikes is allowed in the intersection. This eliminates the need to cross one street and then wait to cross another. It even comes with its own biker shaped traffic light.
