What are green bike lanes made out of?
The Town is piloting multiple materials. These include-
1. Thermoplastic panels. These are often used in traffic markings in high travel areas. The panels are heat applied to the asphalt.
2. Liquid thermoplastic. This product is applied as a liquid and solidifies to resemble the panels.
3. Two-part epoxy. This product is spread with a squeegee and roller. A chemical reaction causes the material to harden.
4. Glass Beads. This product is a resin similar to method three with green glass beads applied to the top. The glass provides reflectivity, color, and texture.
