Yeah I've hung around and watched them, in very simple terms they put down a layer of wet asphalt seal then throw red sand on top of it by hand. More time consuming than pure paint, but definitely seems to wear better and has a lot more grip.That new material seems to take forever to install. I suppose that's why the cities around here seem to be limiting their green bike markings to smaller areas.
As for bike lane markings you'll find some dispute among transportation engineers about where green should be used. Some think that only having it at intersections and conflict points gives it more impact, others think it should be the entire bike corridor, and others think it's all a waste...
