If you hit been using InfraWorks for a patch you would know that most roadway styles that become shipped with the code are for symmetrical roadway.

Or a cycle lane…

Now that I hit your tending – here is how you attain this:

In the Style Edit talking incase the Track Settings inclose highlighted in red…

…has a some buttons at the bottom to edit/modify the roadway section. What is manifest is that if you superior a row in the Right Group or Median Group and ingest the above mentioned buttons you crapper add section. For example, add/modify lane/sidewalk width, etc.

Here is the important part – what is not manifest is that if you utter on the row Right Group, not a bed within the Right Group, you add up selecting the full Right Group and then if you ingest the last button highlighted in flushed below…

…you intend the Left Group…

Now you crapper add this Left Group to create a country per send requirements. In the welfare of instance and naivety I complete the mitt assemble as shown below. You crapper see the it has a cycle lane.

And that’s it!
