Bicycle Route Sharrows
To improve bike safety, promote bicycle commuting, and spread awareness of bicycling in the community, the University is painting sharrow symbols on selected roads surrounding the campus (see map).
Sharrows alert motorists that traffic lanes are shared by bicyclists. They are used when roads and streets are not wide enough to feature dedicated bike lanes. The University has received municipal approvals to apply sharrows to surrounding streets linking to other municipal streets that currently have sharrows, all providing more welcoming circulation for bicycling.
