OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) -
Road crews began installing new pavement markings Tuesday on Central Parkway that will warn motorists parked cars may be in the lane adjacent protected bicycle lanes.
The 6-foot-tall markings reading, “CAUTION PARKED CARS" will run two miles on Central Parkway between Liberty Street and Brighton Place.
That's where on-street parking is permitted most of the day adjacent the bicycle lane. Parking is prohibited 7-9 a.m. in the southbound lane and 4-6 p.m. in the northbound lane.
Outside of rush hours, through motorists are encouraged to use the left-most lane.
The markings are the result of community feedback suggesting more signs or markings could help ensure all motorists clearly understand when to expect parked cars in the rush-hour restricted parking lane between Liberty Street and Brighton Place.
