Roadway with Shared Lane Markings (7.5 miles):
A roadway which is marked with a special symbol that helps position bicyclists and alerts motorists where to expect bicyclists to be operating. The symbol consists of a bicycle emblem under a double-chevron style arrow. These are also sometimes referred to as “Sharrows.”
Shoulders (27.5 miles):
A paved area outside the general travel lanes in which bicycles may operate, but which are not indicated by signs or pavement markings. Motor vehicles typically only use the shoulder as a place to stop in emergencies. Shoulders noted on this map were observed to be approximately 4 feet wide or wider, and would thus be useful as bicycle operating space.
Bike Lanes (14.5 miles):
A distinct lane, separated from other lanes by a solid white line and marked with a bicycle emblem and arrow, for preferential use by bicycles. These are often also supplemented by a Bike Lane sign. Bike lanes are typically 4-6 feet wide. Motor vehicles may cross this lane when turning or stopping. Areas where crossing motor vehicles are most likely to be found can be indicated with a dashed lane stripe.
