Santa Monica this week announced the arrival of its first-ever street with sharrows. Installed as part of regularly scheduled street maintenance on 14th Street at Montana, the lane markings are anticipated to connect riders from the Montana Avenue bike lane to a bike lane planned for 14th Street two blocks away, south of Washington.

"This is a big deal for us," said Michelle Glickert, a Senior Transportation Planner with the city of Santa Monica. "This is going to be a big part of our network."

According to the city, by incorporating bicycle infrastructure with ongoing projects like scheduled street maintenance, the city saves money while continuing to build their bicycle network, which has been envisioned the city's draft land use and circulation plan.
