Denver takes another step to be bicycle friendly:
Denver Public Works Traffic Engineering Services adds permanent bicycle lane markings to portions of Bannock Street near Civic Center Park
WHAT: Denver Public Works Traffic Engineering Services (TES) will apply sharrows (shared lane pavement markings) to North Bannock Street between West Colfax Avenue and East 13th Avenue.
WHO: Denver Public Works Traffic Engineering Services, Traffic Operations Team
WHEN: Today, June 24, 1:00 pm
WHERE: Bannock Street, between Colfax and 13th Avenue
WHY: "Sharrow" is an abbreviated term for a shared lane use pavement marking symbol. Although motorists and cyclists are always expected to share public roadways, sharrows are a relatively new type of pavement marking symbol for use on designated on-street bike routes to provide a visual reminder that motorists and cyclists are to share the road. Public Works is planning to add more sharrows to the following streets in downtown Denver:
* 14th Street - Blake St to Civic Center
* 18th Street - Curtis St to Glenarm St
* 12th Avenue - Sherman to Speer
* Sherman Street - 12th Ave to 16th Ave
* Cleveland Place - 16th St Mall to Webb Building
* 19th Street - Arapahoe St to Broadway
* 16th Avenue - Broadway and Lincoln
