Bike Lanes Spreading in Indianapolis

Bike lanes and sharrows are being added to more streets in Indianapolis, which is a fairly new concept for the city and its drivers.

"When some Indianapolis streets get new bicycle lanes this year, motorists will need to get acquainted with special markings on the road.

The chevrons, diamonds and arrows will show drivers where they need to share the pavement with bicyclists, and where they should stay away and give two-wheeled travelers their own space."

Only last year were bicycle lanes added to some of the city's busiest streets. The new lanes and road paintings are expected to be put in place by the end of the year.
