Eric Garcetti proposed to have the city do bicycle sharrows--basically painted graphics on street lanes indicating bicycles and cars should share the lane, per state law--as a pilot project. That was last year June. One year later, here's the latest via the LA County Bicycle Coalition's e-mail blast today: "At a meeting, held last week, the pilot project timeline was reevaluated and due in part to LADOT and Alta Planning's priority to finish the Bike Plan, the Sharrow Project prioritization won't begin until September. We were hoping to see paint on the ground before the end of 2009, but unfortunately it looks like we will not see paint until early 2010. "
