The city's bike network plan, which aims to have 1,000 kilometres of bike paths built by 2012, including 495 kilometres of bike lanes on city streets, had included bike lines on both sides of this stretch of Annette.
But opposition from locals led city council to scrap the bike-lane scheme and adopt a compromise proposed by Saundercook, which is to paint "sharrows" – which indicate motorists should share the road with cyclists. They would be temporary, and officials would eventually study whether bicycle traffic flow on Annette warranted bike lanes.
