Update: Minutes from the CTCDC Meeting are now available.

Yesterday the LADOT bikeways team presented a proposal to experiment with green highlighted shared lane markings (HSLM) at the California Traffic Control Devices (CTCDC) board meeting in Santa Ana. According to the 2012 CA MUTCD, Shared lane markings (or sharrows) are intended to:

  • Reduce the chance of bicyclists impacting open doors of parked vehicles on a shared roadway with on-street parallel parking.
  • Alert road users within a narrow traveled way of the lateral location where bicyclists ride.
  • Be used only on roadways without marked bicycle lanes or shoulders.

Our proposed HSLM experiment will be conducted along a stretch of Gayley Ave. (between Weyburn Ave. and Lindbrook Dr.) out in Westwood Village.
