NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide (2011) on bike lane widths
The desirable bike lane width adjacent to a curbface is 6 feet. The desirable ridable surface adjacent to a street edge or longitudinal joint is 4 feet, with a minimum width of 3 feet. In cities where illegal parking in bike lanes is an concern, 5 foot wide bike lanes may be preferred.
----
The recommended width of a bike lane is 1.5m (5 feet) from the face of a curb or guardrail to the bike lane stripe.
If the [longitudinal] joint is not smooth, 1.2m (4 feet) of ridable surface should be provided.
