The Shared Lane Road Improvements Project - Completed

Bicycling is an increasingly viable commute option to access the Berkeley Lab.  This is primarily due to the Lab’s sustainability goals and heavy parking demand.  As part of Berkeley Lab’s long-term commitment to improving bicycling safety, Berkeley Lab is installing lane markings designed to enhance safe sharing of our roads between motorists and cyclists. These “sharrow” markings and associated signs will be added to downhill lanes. Sharrows are designed to


Shared lane markings, called “sharrows”, will be painted on many of the downhill lanes at the Berkeley Lab. 

                                                               

In addition to the lane markings, signs reminding drivers that bicycles are permitted the full use of the lane will be placed in select locations.

                                                              

It is important to remember that bicycle riders on public roads have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists, and are subject to the same rules and regulations. In their flyer “Sharing the Road -- Safety Tips for Bicyclists and Motorists” the CA DMV summarizes the most relevant rules and advice.
