Bike Bay State Greenway Franklin County Sign 2013The Massachusetts Bay State Greenway branding and family of identification and way-faring signs have been showcased at MassDOT’s Moving Together Conference and during Bay State Bike Week.   

Now you can see these signs appearing in the Pioneer Valley, as part of MassDOT’s Bay State Greenway sign pilot project to establish standards for installation.  This pilot project has successfully blended signage treatments for on-road and off-road facilities along with existing regionally named routes. 

Bay State Greenway signs raise the visibility of bicycling as a healthy transportation mode, support local businesses with bicycle tourism and allow our customers to better use existing facilities.  Use of the network also highlights the importance of funding future connections.  

Shown above is a Bay State Greenway Pioneer Valley sign mounted with the existing Franklin County Bikeway, a regional route also enabled by MassDOT. Completion of the Pioneer Valley signage pilot is expected by this spring, and MassDOT expects to see these signs coming to existing Bay State Greenway corridors across the Commonwealth.
