    Thanks for posting. My experiences at that intersection, and even at Little Falls since the road was narrowed, have been overwhelmingly positive. This is a good reminder never to assume that a car...

    Threatening to build a protected people lane with reflective flexposts might be just what's needed to get people to support a nice sidewalk!
