I’d like to look at one on Google Maps.

This allows the traffic circle to flow smoothly for most users, while calming traffic at the same time…

Comment on Sign the Barbur Boulevard Letter Of Support For Action by Chris Smith http://www.activerightofway.org/p/sign-the-barbur-boulevard-letter-of-support-for-action/#comment-18886 Mon, 12 Aug 2013 17:57:22 +0000 http://www.activerightofway.org/?p=2439#comment-18886 I ran in to Keil on Barbur just after he had completed filming this. He was one stressed-out dude, having made multiple passes on the bridges to get these compelling images.

Let’s get this fixed!

This space is dangerous as hell, cars zipping by within inches going upwards of 45 miles an hour. Not only is the bike lane not buffered, but it’s only a dashed line in the middle of car lanes far, far too wide to calm traffic. Really can’t see how this was an improvement.
