Where should Linn County put Share the Road signs?

Which Linn County roads should get Share the Road signs?

I’m helping HBA member Lisa Paulos come up with recommendations for this project.

Just add a comment. Thanks!

    On the North side of the county, perhaps between Center Point and Central City. Center Point going North.

    County Home Rd. is always a good one.

    Thanks, Dave. Here are some other suggestions people made on Facebook. It’s true that Solon is in Johnson County, but there could certainly be a sign just south of Ely telling people to share the road on their way to Solon. Ditto south of Mount Vernon.

    Read on:

    Rita – Ely road into Solon, Mt Vernon Rd (old hwy 30) into Mt Vernon, the road between Mt Vernon and Solon, County Home Rd, Edgewood Rd over the cedar bridge … how many do you have?

    Denise – Alice rd,central city rd alburnett rd

    Larry – This is a Linn County project so some of Rita’s very good suggestions won’t qualify. IMHO the very first one should go on County Home Rd in Whittier where that guy got hit. Then Ellis Rd, HWY 94 into Palo, Blairs Ferry Rd between Cedar Rapids and Palo, Lewis Bottom Rd between Palo and Center Point, Center Point Rd between Hiawatha and Center Point, Airport Rd, the Springville-Mt. Vernon Rd, Buffalo Ridge Rd….

    Rob – C Ave between Blairs Ferry and County Home!!!! Unfortunately, a Share the Road sign would be the equivalent of the “Bump” sign. Until you actually make the road wide enough to accommodate the current traffic volume AND fit a bike or two, I’m not sure how much it will really help.

    I think that the signs should be on the roads with the most cars that are also used by bicycles. Some examples in Linn County are:

    1. The Ely Road between CR and Ely
    2. County Home Road between Center Point Road and Hwy 13
    3. Center Point Road between County Home Road and Center Point
    4. Hwy 94 between CR and Palo
    5. Mout Vernon Road between Hwy 13 and Mt Vernon
    6. Central City Road between Center Point and Central City
