Bicycle & Pedestrian
Agendas for the Bicycle and Pedestrian Subcommittee.
Volunteer with us to conduct a bicycle and pedestrian count at over 20 locations in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County!
The goal of the Harrisonburg and Rockingham Bike-Walk Summit is to develop partnerships and to increase coordination between the City, County, and other stakeholders to make our region a great biking and walking community to live in and visit!
A Design Public Hearing for the Carlton Street Roundabout and Improvements Project will be held on Tuesday, August 6, 2013 from 4:30pm-6:30pm at Spotswood Elementary School.
The Carlton Street Improvements Project is located at the intersection of Carlton Street and Reservoir Street and extends approximately 300 feet in each direction.
The MUTCD states that "if used, the shared lane markings should be placed immediately after an intersection and spaced at intervals not greater than 250 feet thereafter."
In 2009, the Federal Highway Administration approved the use of Shared Roadway Markings ("Sharrows") in their Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Many cities around the country are using sharrows on streets that are both popular with bicyclists but may be too narrow for conventional bike lanes.
No, bicyclists can ride on any roadway, except for those designed as limited access highways with signs explicitly prohibiting bicyclists (such as Interstate 81).
Cyclists are allowed on every street regardless of whether there is a marking or sign for them unless stated otherwise.
