What are those new bike markings on Pine Street?

The new markings are shared lane markings, or "sharrows." Sharrows are bicycle symbols that are placed in a vehicular travel lane on a designated bicycle route that is too narrow for a motor vehicle and a bicycle to travel side by side within the same traffi c lane. Unlike bicycle lanes, shared lane markings do not designate a particular part of the road for bicycle use. Shared lane markings provide a visible cue to bicyclists and motorists that bicyclists are expected and welcome in the roadway.
