Seattle’s Sharrows

One very prominent feature of Seattle’s cycling infrastructure are its sharrows. While Portland primarily reserves these shared lane markings for their Neighborhood Greenways, Seattle has applied them liberally to many different types of streets. Take a look for yourself in the photos below.

With the exception of the occasional trip via car on a freeway there seemed to be sharrows on every road I traveled on. This is in stark contrast to the two lonely sharrows installed by the City of Tigard on a newly renovated street in their downtown.
