Bike ‘sharrows’ added to Fremont Ave.

The city has painted “sharrow” markers all along Fremont Ave.

The sharrow symbol, a bicycle topped with two chevrons, is meant to signal motorists to share the road with cyclists. The markers usually go in at places where bikes are moving closer to the speed of vehicles (i.e., downhill) and where the road isn’t wide enough to accommodate a bike lane.
