Mass Highway Policy Directive P-97-001, dated 6/16/97, signed by the Commissioner

The following is MassHighway policy for installing Bicycle Route signing, pavement markings and other appurtenances related to designating portions of state highway as bicycle routes.

MassHighway will only consider signing a state highway as a bicycle route if strict adherence to bicycle related measures have been provided on the facility. This will generally consist of conformance with the following:

State roadways under consideration for bicycle signing will be reviewed by the State Traffic Engineer in consultation with the MassHighway Bicycle Coordinator for conformance with this policy. Absolute conformance is required; no waiver or exception process is available.

Bicyclists may still use roadways not in conformance with this policy (except where legally prohibited), however, bicycle route signing will not be installed.
