We do need prettier bollards.

I see these ugly bollards on certain on-ramps to American expressways -- that is exactly what these bollards remind me of. Perhaps it's a budget issue as an interim solution until the road surface repaving and a proper solution (e.g. bumpouts, etc)

That said -- this is a start to further area improvement, and to reduce rat running (which I'm, admittedly, guilty of doing, too, as an automobile owner) When the city finally does a full repaving of the worn parts of Barton (bound to happen eventually out of sheer necessity), we need to do the street 'properly' -- and install prettier bollards (that are also bike-pass-through friendly). Or a real bumpout, or -- maybe -- even parking-protected bike lanes on Barton. I don't know what the proper fix for Barton is, but it will be interesting to hear what is in Jason Thorne's mind.
