As part of the project, the contractor was awarded $75,000 to add bike lane striping to streets not include in the overlay project but are included in the city’s bikeway master plan.

The petition efforts launched Aug. 12 and must gather 365,000 signatures by Sept. 29.

Number of Encinitas streets could get ‘sharrows’ By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Dozens of streets in Encinitas could be restriped to accommodate bicycle traffic, according to a plan discussed at the Traffic and Public Safety Commission meeting this week. The commission voted unanimously for the city’s public works staff to return with a list of roads they intend to stripe for bicycle traffic, and the type of striping that will occur on the streets. In some cases where the road is wide enough to accommodate it, the striping will create a dedicated bicycle lane. The width of the bike lane in most places will be six feet. On streets not wide The Encinitas Traffic and Public Safety Commission is requesting a list of streets that enough for a dedicated lane, crews could see new striping to accommodate bicycle safety. Both sides of Coast Highway 101 will paint symbols on the roadway are being considered. Photo by Tony Cagala
