NB City Council to consider PCH Sharrows

City Council To Consider CdM Sharrows For Cyclists at Tuesday Meeting

After two and a half years of debate, sharrows — special markings to alert motorists to share the road with cyclists — will go before the Newport Beach City Council on Tuesday.

According to an agenda posted for Tuesday’s meeting, the Council will discuss whether to accept a bike safety committee’s recommendation to add sharrow markings along East Coast Highway and direct staff to create an installation and public outreach plan. A staff report included in the online meeting agenda states that the city’s budget includes funding for sharrows but does not specify the cost.

The Newport Beach city attorney also said the city would not assume increased liability for a “dangerous condition of a public property” by adding sharrows, the letter states.
