SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- New signs went up in Springfield Tuesday morning to improve safety for cyclists.

The new bicycle wayfinding and safety signs provide directional, mileage and approximate travel time information to destinations around Springfield.

Cyclists can find the signs in the downtown area and along the Northbank, Middle Fork and Mill Race paths.

“A lot of people biking from Eugene or biking from Springfield over to Eugene use this bike path on a daily basis,” said Emma Newman, senior transportation planner with the city of Springfield. “People use it for recreation. Bicycle tourists use it. It’s really providing a lot of transportation to different people.”

The safety signs are friendly reminders to bicyclists to yield to pedestrians and how to pass others that are using the paths.
