Village of Elk Rapids Shows Off Some Sharrows

Elk Rapids: Sharrows

Sharrow in Elk Rapids via The MyWHaT Roaming Reporter

This is the first year of the sharrow program and the village has placed them on all streets leading  into downtown, including the main drag River St. There are a total of 12 of them put in to meet the goal of a more welcoming community to people on bicycles. As far as we know, these are the first sharrows in Northern Michigan.

Kudos!  [Applause]

What’s a sharrow?

Where could Traverse City put them?

    Fantastic! Can you provide more details on the “sharrow program”? I added a link to this posting on our Sharrow resource page (http://www.lmb.org/index.php/Advocacy-Toolkit/sharrows.html), but I’d love to add more info about said program. Thanks!

    Only had a quick chat with Steve up in Elk Rapids. Was pretty simple, just saw a need for them. Didn’t have time for more. Give em a call and let us know if there is anymore to it.
