While this video doesn't apply to the MVT/GW Parkway/Washington Blvd./Memorial Bridge area directly, it has some interesting ideas that could spur new thinking on how that area could be improved in terms of safety, for cyclists, runners and drivers.


I like the idea of the traffic light for cars being placed 50 meters or so away from the cycletrack crossing. That might not be so practical in the MVT/Memorial Bridge area but the general idea could be implemented somehow.

Wow, is that heaven?

I've been staring at that interchange for about an hour now trying to think of which crossings to move, eliminate, combine, and synchronize. I've come to the conclusion that we're screwed.
