The City continues to sign and mark the roads striped with sharrows.
On Commercial and Rosemont NW, "Share Full Lane" signs are going up. This is one is on Rosemont NW at Second, just off Edgewater and at the driveway to the Safeway lot. As with Commercial, there's a good bit of auto traffic here, and the reminder to share is useful for everyone, especially those still transitioning from highway speed to residential neighborhood speed.
Last week, an experienced and regular bicyclist on Commercial indicated that while he still had a couple of cars honking at him rather than sharing, in general the sharrows and signing were a significant improvement.
There are also some small tweaks to the pavement markings.
Here on Chemeketa at Winter, the City added a bike through-lane protected from the right-turn only auto lane. Since the route is for bicyclists to use the at-grade turn-around rather than the below-grade ramp through the parking garage, a very quick merge is required. The west-bound direction can be especially tricky. Here the dotted line and bike icon guide people on bikes to the center.
How are the sharrows and signs working for you?
