Intersections and Facility Transitions

Oh where, oh where did my bike lane go...

Intersections can be tricky to navigate depending on the facility that you choose to drive in.  Bike lanes are really just a wider travel lane with a stripe of paint between you and the motorist.  What should you do when your bike lane ends?  This is a common situation as bike lanes are generally added in sections when a road is reconstructed.

Coming Soon-- Instructional videos to help you navigate through intersections like this one at Sylvania Ave. and Holland-Sylvania.

2013 Roadway Capital Improvements (Proposed)

Here are the roads being considered for resurface (blue) or reconstruction (red) as released by Mayor Bell on November 28 for council review.  You can download a copy of the list here.  In addition to blacktop, the northern section of what is known (today) as the Westside Corridor will receive a gravel surface allowing access between Monroe Ave. and Bowman Park (see purple line).

Bikes, People, a Bus and Cars

Another re-creation in Australia of the world-famous transport photo.  On Sunday 9th September 69 volunteers, 69 bicycles, 60 cars and one bus gathered in Canberra to recreate a world-renowned photograph taken more than 20 years ago to demonstrate the advantages of bus and bicycle travel in congested cities.

The image shows the typical space occupied in a city street by three common modes of transport—cars, bicycles and a bus—and is being made available free of charge to organisations, group and individuals to help promote the efficiency of public transport and cycling in congested cities.
