Lexington tweaking traffic lights to make roads safer for cyclists
safer for cyclists. Kenzie Gleason, who is bicycle and pedestrian coordinator for the city's planning division, says some traffic lights will be programmed this fall to be able to tell the difference between bicycles and cars. The initiative is being funded with $175,000 in government money that was initially earmarked to expand a bicycle-sharing program. However, officials found out the funds wouldn't cover the planned expansion and decided to use the money on signal detection.
