New Sharrows on 8th St NE

Riders on the Metropolitan Branch Trail know that the trail by the train tracks dumps cyclists on 8th St NE under Franklin St. In the last few days sharrows have been added to 8th St NE which help cyclists and motorists share the road. So glad to see the sharrows on 8th St, even though it is a fairly quiet neighborhood street. The sharrows are helping because you can see from my lane position in the video that I am riding where the sharrows indicate I should and the motorists give me plenty of space while passing.

It does seem strange that the sharrows closest to Monroe St are painted up against the curb. Not sure what that’s about.
