COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - Green means go for cyclists and pedestrians in one Georgia city.

Columbus is experimenting with crosswalks painted green along a 1.5-mile section of a walking and biking trail.

Planning Director Rick Jones tells the Ledger-Enquirer the paint is meant to call attention to the trail as a special zone for pedestrians and cyclists, and to make sure motorists are paying attention.

Columbus has spent $2.4 million to build 12-foot-wide paths, replacing standard sidewalks along the stretch of the Fall Line Trace. Jones says that if the crosswalks don’t work, the city will look to other strategies to increase visibility.
