Nearly two years after a motion set forth by Council President Eric Garcetti, a pilot program to bring sharrows--street markings educating bicyclists and drivers on sharing the road--could become a reality. Installation of the street markings could begin February 2nd and be completed by May, provided all funders sign contracts allowing city employees to begin work, it was learned a Los Angeles City Council Transportation Meeting yesterday. In addition to the sharrows noted in Garcetti's motion--Vermont Avenue between Hollywood Boulevard and 4th Street as well as Fountain Avenue between the 101 freeway and Hoover Street--the following nine locations are in consideration, but officials emphasize these are only in draft and have not been finalized yet:

  • Fountain from Western to Vermont
  • Adams from Western to Hoover
