View Custis Trail bike signal location in a larger map
This crossing already had a walk/don't-walk pedestrian signal, which would inform cyclists about the status of the cross traffic. There is no right-turn-on-red at this intersection, so cars waiting on Oak Street should (theoretically) not create a conflict when the bike signal is green and the pedestrian signal is in the walk mode. Cyclists need to take care about right-turning traffic from Lee Highway onto Oak. Although these cars are supposed to yield to bikes and peds in the crosswalk, one should always take care that they actually do.
Here are some photos of the new signal:
