Ride this way! Sharrows popping up in Downtown Raleigh « GoTriangle

Tired of seeing the same old thing when you’re driving around town? Think you are one of those people who experience driving hypnosis? Then time to wake up and see the cyclists! Something new is coming to some Raleigh streets and it’s called the sharrow.  Sharrows are markings applied directly to the pavement to direct cyclists to ride in the proper direction and raise motorist awareness of the potential presence of cyclists.

According to City of Raleigh Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator, Jennifer Baldwin, “The City’s first resurfacing project to include sharrows will be on Northclift Rd, from Six Forks Rd to Beardsley Rd. The project is scheduled for July 26-29. If everything goes as planned and with no delays, the sharrows should be painted on the 28th.”
