It looks good. Nice to see more bike lanes. I don't know about the bike lane on the island though. That's a pretty tight turning radius. I like the idea of greenery/garden instead of concrete whenever possible, but in this case, it might be worth the increased usability/safety to sacrifice that small "garden". Even if they removed a roughly 4 square foot triangle out of the garden to make the corner easier to negotiate on a bike, it would help a lot.

I guess one thing the tight turn does is force a cyclist to slow down to the point they are almost forced to stop where they are supposed to, but still, it just looks so tight, cramped, and not user friendly.
