insufficient shoulder width
CCC recently repaved this section but has not yet painted permanent lane markers. From the temporary lane markers it appears they are going to leave it as bad as it was previously i.e., with a very narrow outside lane widths in both directions. This hazard was created by CCC over two decades ago when the center turn lane was created and outside lane widths were reduced to the point where bicyclists must take the entire lane to be safe. Problem is few cyclists do, as there are no sharrows or other safety mitigations, much less law enforcement, and motorists in this area are particularly confrontational.
This is a major bicycle arterial, and the only east/west bicycle route for several miles in either direction.
Recommend a notice of hazardous conditions, if possible, before the final striping.
