Bike Sharrows

With the completion of bike sharrows and lanes, cyclicsts will now have new opportunites to travel the streets of downtown Green Bay.  In shared lanes, cyclists and drivers will notice a new marking, designating the lane as a shared lane between bicycles and vehicles. Based on the width of the street and the presence of on-street parking, these shared lanes will either direct cyclists to use the full lane or move to the edge of the street. These are not the same as bike lanes! Bike lanes are designated lanes used only by cyclists. Sharrows will now exist on Washington, Cherry, and Crooks Streets, while additional bicycle lanes can be found on sections of Broadway, S Washington, and S Baird Street.

Use this pamphlet to learn more about the new sharrows and bike lanes and how to use them as both a driver and a cyclist: Brochure-Sharing the Streets.
