Incorrect. A sharrow is used on a designated bicycle route to indicate
what part of a shared lane bicyclists should use (ideally the center of
the chevrons) and to remind motorists that they're driving on a bicycle
route. It doesn't indicate what network (LCN/RCN/ICN/NCN), just that the
lane is one on a designated bicycle route where bicycles frequently use
Downtown Portland has plans on putting these markings on all lanes of
most downtown streets soon.
