Overview and Applications of ‘Sharrows’ paper (pdf)

This paper provides an overview of the evolving design of the shared lane marking (or “sharrow”), examines the many purposes and benefits of the sharrow, describe some deployment approaches, discusses some criticisms of sharrows, and provides recommendations on how localities should incorporate sharrows in their jurisdiction’s bicycle policies and plans.  This paper predates the issuance of the AASHTO Bike Design Guide, which reportedly provides guidance on sharrow implementation beyond the minimum standards specified in the MUTCD.
