Sharrow Lanes
East River Connection

A shared lane is identified with a new type of pavement marking that directs bicycles and vehicles in the same lane. The new shared lane markings are known as “sharrows”.

Sharrow lanes are not just for bicycles, but are to be shared by motorists and bicyclists. Sharrow lanes serve to emphasize that bicycles have the right to share the road with motor vehicles. Sharrow lanes should not be confused with bicycle lanes which are set aside for bicyclists only and are marked by a solid white line.

The East River Trail Connection will bridge the gap between Joannes Park and the Fox River Trail through the historic Olde Main Street District. This "missing link" will connect the urban environment to the natural beauty of our City Parks and the East River.
