What are Sharrows?

A sharrow, also known as a Shared Lane Marking, is the bike-and-chevrons symbol illustrated in MUTCD figure 9C-9. This marking is placed in a travel lane and indicates the the preferred cycling location to cyclists and motorists. Sharrows will be placed in the center of the lane, include directional arrows where needed, and be accompanied by appropriate signage.
