Clifton Road Getting Bike TattoosDecatur Metro | April 15, 2010
Diane sends in details about Clifton Road’s (from North Decatur Road to Briarcliff Road) newest bike-provement from Kathleen Sobush at the CDC…
There is a plan slated for implementation this summer to mark sharrows on Clifton Road and to install Bicycles Allowed Full Use of Lane signage (in accordance with Georgia code). A sharrow is an on street marking of a bicycle and two chevrons indicating the direction of travel as depicted below. There are standards guiding the placement of sharrows. They should be no more than 250 feet apart and no less than 4 feet from the curb. Within those standards there is room for adjustment based on the roadway conditions.
DeKalb County began marking locations on Clifton Road today for sharrows. CDC cyclists who use Clifton Road have been requested to provide comment on the planned locations currently marked by white chevrons on street.
Please let me know if you believe the locations currently marked on Clifton Road with white chevrons are
1. Appropriate as marked
2. Need to be modified
3. If you believe they need to be modified, please describe why and try to be specific regarding the location.
