This initial phase started last summer with 4th Street bike lane striping in Old Town. Now, Phase 1 has been completed. The Phase 1 build-out consists of 3 miles of designated bikeways -1.25 miles of on-street bike lanes and 1.75 miles of shared roads designated as bike routes. These routes are signed with the familiar bike route sign and are marked in the road with sharrows. These sharrows help cyclists find the lateral location in a shared-lane where they are unlikely to be impacted by the sudden opening of a parked car door.
