Do Sharrows establish a bike lane? Can I drive over them?
The pavement markings do NOT establish a dedicated bike lane to be used for bicycling only. Bike Lanes are separated from vehicular traffic with a solid white lane line and denote an area where other vehicles cannot drive, park, or stand. Bike Lanes require wider pavement to install and can be found on 7th Street, Yampa Street, and Oak Street.


The new Sharrow is different – it is an awareness tool on narrower roads where bikes and other vehicles must share the same space. Motorists drive in the travel lane over the symbol. The mark is simply a reminder to be alert for the potential presence of cyclists.
