Carthage bicycle lane striping project nears completion

News

The city is nearing the completion of the bicycle lane striping project. This means that cars and bikes will be sharing the road. 

The city has included bike route signs like “sharrows” and bike lanes to show areas designated for bicycles. Sharrows have a bicycle with two arrows above it stating cars and bicycles share the road. Bike lanes are a designated portion of the outside lanes that indicate only bicycles are allowed.

City leaders ask drivers to always be aware of their surroundings and keep an eye out for bikes, pedestrians and skateboarders.
