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.

We are now testing three new types of posts and want your feedback on which posts you prefer for Sacramento.

You may be asking – why posts and not planters or other types of concrete treatments? The answer is pretty simple – funding. Curbs, planters, and other types of concrete treatments are expensive and typically funded through a grant. This effort is not funded through a grant but is funded through the City’s small amount of local funding for spot improvements.

The Battle of the Bollards survey has closed as of November 30, 2022. The Department of Public Works will use the feedback to determine the best option for the City by Spring 2023.
