These white road markings showed up near several traffic circles in Phinney-Greenwood a couple of months ago and had some people confused.
Some thought they were a different version of “sharrows,” which highlight areas where bikes and cars share the road, but those markings include a bicycle. Others thought it had something to do with speed limits.
But Dawn Schellenberg with Seattle Department of Transportation tells us they’re part of the “pop-up” greenway that was installed back in August to show what a neighborhood greenway could look like. She said the temporary markings should wear off with the wet weather.
