I saw people trying to cycle up the stupid concrete ditch yesterday the city put along the Beckett Dr access. When you look at how much they widened the road-bed, it easily could have housed a 2-way multi use path on the north side. Instead they put in oversized lanes, and now are cluttering the bottom of the hill with all sorts of warnings trying to get people to drive slower. Wider lanes = speeding. Always. They also really slapped everyone in the face by literally just wasting loadspace by painting off a yellow dead zone in the middle of the street. And then the concrete ditch on the south curb, again not needed for a road that runs through a forest. Angle the roadway into the forest for run-off instead of trying to capture forest runoff.

Worst part is, they had plenty of input from residents asking for at least and up-bound bike lane, and for narrower traffic lanes. Best place to ignore citizen input......
