    Sounds like an improvement. That two-inch curb offered insufficient protection from speeding freeway traffic.

    Parked cars are in fact part of the physical separation between southbound bicycles and automobiles, in addition to the buffer, if I interpret the design docs correctly. The design resembles Wilson...

    Was the south side of the street considered for the dock at Eisenhower & Ike? People using that station will most likely be heading to/from the Eisenhower trail.

    There are situations where it is not even possible to produce a vocal warning audible at 100 feet. Consider a loud environment (like the 14th Street Bridge) on a day with a strong headwind.

    Needs signage all the way back at IOD. TR Bridge is the only legal trail access point between there and Mem Bridge. A diversion across the TR Bridge would lengthen the necessary detour, even if...

    Gallows is the obvious alternative to replace most trips currently using Cedar. But if your origin and/or destination are already a bit west of the Cedar bridge (e.g. riding from Villa Lee Park to...

    Many summaries of this story are omitting the fact that the long distances being reported from the simulation specifically apply to following directly in someone else's slipstream (i.e. where you're...

    "The primary cause of death appears to be the bullets not staying in Mr. Behler's gun, police say".

    Suspect? Let's not jump to conclusions! FTFY.

    I have executed this same exact maneuver on multiple occasions and have never had a problem. After you have moved a few bikes to partially rebalance the system, the angel points do get reduced for...

    I encounter this very often, especially late evenings. The two most frequent problem areas in my experience have been eastbound bikes and scooters in the PBLs on M St (West End) and Wilson Blvd...

    Reducing westbound vehicle capacity at the Glebe/Glebe intersection would be a tough sell, since auto traffic often stacks over that bridge. But only one vehicle at a time can ever legally enter the...

    Sightlines of the crosswalk aren't great for drivers entering that ramp from the north. Nor for drivers coming down the hill trying to catch RCP southbound. And those downhill drivers sometimes block...

    This could create an opportunity for data collection regarding the impact of a potential road diet or bus lane on Columbia Pike. Since the closures will be in place for many months, we can observe ...

    Right-turning drivers have a tendency to assume that they too can go whenever they see a green light to go straight. I've seen a lot of drivers run reds under similar circumstances at 22nd & M, Duke...

    In case I was at all unclear, I have no doubt that drivers may in fact behave more hostile and dangerous around female cyclists. My objection was only with journalists' assertion that the study I...

    I haven't been this way in awhile, but perhaps this is a seasonal thing? From Streetview it looks like much of the reduction in viewing distance is due to vegetation hanging off the trees in the...

    Very true. And even when the underlying data are in fact accessible, data journalists can often contaminate their communication with ignorance of (or willful blindness to) basic statistics.

    For this reason, I've typically found that streets with a lot of unpredictable activity feel quite safe for cycling. The chaos actually helps, as long as you are not too shy to take the lane when...

    A trail already makes this crossing (see above). The sightlines are good, but it would be safer with a street light to illuminate people crossing.[/QUOTE]

    I didn't think of that in my responses for this segment, but I agree that the gap further east in the 50 southside trail is a big hole in the network for bicycling. From Penrose there is no way to...

    My first take on The Quadrant Roadway and Restricted Crossing U-Turn concepts: they look like exurban fantasies that would be highly inappropriate for a road like this one. I have no idea how they...
