Bike events explain odd pavement markers

August 29th, 2014 by travis baker

The in basket: Gary Reed says, “I have noticed many small white circles with an orange dot in the middle on many roads, and even into the Kitsap Mall parking lot.

“Some have tails that point straight, some have tails that point to the right or left, and a few have a ‘FWY’ designator.  Are these part of a new geo-mapping effort by some entity?” he asked.

The out basket: No, says Doug Bear of Kitsap County Public Works. “They are directional markers commonly called ‘Dan Henrys.’ They are installed by groups that host bicycle events. They are used so participants know the correct route for the event. They use a ‘fade-away’ paint that eventually disappears,” he said.
