Bike Paths (Class I)
Off-street bike paths are facilities on a separate right-of-way from roadways, and are usually shared by bicyclists and pedestrians. 
Bicycle Lane
Bike Lanes (Class II)
Bicycle lanes are painted lanes that may be supplemented with a buffer space between the bicycle lane and motor vehicle traffic.
Local Street Bikeways (Class III)
On quiet local streets, bicycles can safely share space with motor vehicle traffic. Designating these streets with signage and stencils alerts all road users to the presence of people on bikes.
