Rehoboth Beach to install bike sharrows as summer approaches
REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. – The City of Rehoboth Beach will start placing bike sharrow symbols along certain roadways next week.
The symbols will be placed along Rehoboth Avenue, Bayard Avenue, Henlopen Avenue, and State Road. Rather than a separate bike lane, a sharrow is a symbol painted on the road that indicates that those riding bikes and those driving cars must share the road.
Over 140 sharrow symbols are set to be installed along 2.5 miles of road next Monday, May 16th, weather permitting. The work, being completed by city contractor Straight Line, has an expected cost of $4,935.
