The City of Richardson developed two new standard cross-sections in 2012 for bike lane design within the city limits. The two typical standards are shown below with a brief description.

Bike Lane WITH On-Street Parking

Roadway segments with houses fronting the street (meaning the front door faces the street) will still have on-street parking. The Pavement markings will consist of two solid white lines with the bicyclist symbol in between them. The travel lane will be a 10ft section next to the median, the bike lane will be between the two solid lines, and the 7ft section next to the curb will be for on-street parking. Signs along these roadways will read as follows:

Roadway segments that have either the side yard of a house or no house fronting the street will have a standard design of a 10 ft travel lane next to the median and a 7 ft bike lane next to the curb, separated by a buffer. The buffer consists of two solid white lines with chevron markings between them. Parking is not allowed in these sections. Nearby residents and their guests should park in their garage, driveway, or on the roadway in front of their houses. Signs along these bike lanes will be the standard bike lane sign as follows:
