Battle of the Bollards logo with bicycles, delineators and musical instruments

When Sacramento rolled out our first parking protected bikeways, we tried a type of vertical flex post to keep drivers out of the bikeway.

The posts didn't last very long.

Over the last 2 years, we tested three new types of posts and asked residents for their feedback on which posts they prefer for Sacramento. We received over 1000 responses to the survey, thank you!

The Transportation team is pleased to announce the winner of the Battle of the Bollards! Sacramento’s communities overwhelmingly chose the K71 flex post, and noted they wanted to see a post that had a different color than the white striping on the roads.

Introducing the new post for Sacramento’s protected bikeways – the green K71!

These posts will be rolling out on Sacramento streets soon along existing separated bikeways along 9th Street, 10th Street, P Street, and Q Street. In addition, the Central City Mobility Project will be integrating the posts in new protected bikeways along 19th Street, 21st Street and I Street.
