More sharrows placed as streetcar construction wraps up
A new sharrow on University Boulevard and Tyndall Avenue.
New sharrows and green paint popped up along this entire length of the streetcar tracks last last week.
The new markings arrived as the construction is winding down. In fact, the emails alerting the public and media to streetcar construction alerts will no longer be sent out.
Here’s what the streetcar team said in the last update:
As construction activities for the Sun Link streetcar are nearly complete, this will be the last weekly traffic alert issued. During the streetcar testing phase, alerts will be sent as needed if impacts to the traveling public are expected. The Sun Link Streetcar Team thanks each of you for your patience, consideration and cooperation during the construction phase of this project.
As for the sharrows, they appeared on Park Avenue, University Boulevard, Congress Street and Broadway Boulevard. As of this weekend, the sharrows on Fourth Avenue that were removed because they were too close to the curb, have not been replaced.
New green pavement and bike legends are added to Fifth Avenue and Broadway Boulevard.
In addition to sharrows, new green paint has been placed along the streetcar route. Broadway Boulevard and Fifth street received several new treatments.
It’s pretty evident by the way people interact with the green markings like the bike box on University Boulevard that most people still don’t know what they mean.
