Newark Bikeways sign graphic

BikeNewark continues its work on developing and implementing wayfinding signage for the city’s Newark Bikeways low-stress network. To date, four of the eight segments of the network are fully signed. Two more are due to have signage installed early in 2023, with the remaining two bikeway segments developed and signed in tandem with planned city bicycle-specific improvement projects.

In cooperation with WILMAPCO and the City of Newark, BikeNewark published a short video explaining the often misunderstood road marking called a “sharrow.” Love ’em or hate ’em, more sharrows are appearing in Newark, and bicyclists and motorists need to understand what they mean.
