The City of Fort Lauderdale has recently begun using distinct green street markings in select areas of the city.  These pavement markings known as “sharrows” or “shared arrows” indicate that the street is being navigated and shared by both bicyclists and motorists.  Sharrows are not the same as bike lanes, which reserve a section of the street for bicyclists only.  Instead, the green paint with white bicycle and arrows indicate that bicyclists may ride on the street using the full lane by following the middle of the arrow on the markings on the street.  They also alert motorists to expect bicycles on the street.

Sharrows are now part of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) improvement project for US1, and can be found throughout a new bike route found to both the north and south of Sunrise Boulevard between Searstown and the Gateway intersection.  They have been installed along various roads in the Lake Ridge and Victoria Park neighborhoods to safely direct bicyclists around the construction for the improvement of US1. 

Because “bikeability” and bike safety are important to the residents of Fort Lauderdale, the City has been able to work with FDOT to successfully negotiate the installation of the new bike amenities into the US1 project, making the streets safer for everyone.

See the map below to view the new “sharrow” or “shared arrow” routes found throughout central Fort Lauderdale, north and south of Sunrise Boulevard (routes in red).
