About the Project: In response to community desires for better biking conditions, BVNA and Greenbelt Alliance worked with Street Plans to create a 2-day demonstration project to add temporary sharrows to the Scott Street corridor in San Jose. In addition to chalk sharrows set with hairspray, the two-day project featured programming such as an energizer station and bike-themed block party. The sharrow installation was enabled through a standard traffic control plan approved by SJDOT, and the block party was permitted through a Block Party Permit. STOP During the block party, BVNA and Greenbelt used a survey to gather input about desired complete 100’ streets upgrades from a wider group of neighborhood residents. RICHMOND AVE (25 MPH)
