There are some roads around here where something similar was done. They re-stripped the road and combined the shoulder from both sides to one side and then set that up as a bike lane. I ride in it going in that direction and in the road going the other direction.

It is not the ideal situation, but I think it is a genuine attempt to make things more bike friendly without having to make the roads wider or adding dedicated lanes, either of which would be unaffordable.
