Utah’s Newest Road Diet: Provo unveils new protected bike lanes along Cougar Boulevard

New protected bike lanes have opened along Cougar Boulevard near Brigham Young University in Provo.

Last month Bulldog Boulevard was renamed for the Cougars, and on Monday Provo City unveiled a new look with protected lanes for cyclists and tree-lined sidewalks.

Provo Mayor Michelle Kaufusi, city leaders and the Utah Department of Transportation joined with cyclists for the grand opening of the state’s third protected bike lane.
