    I had trouble with this question:

    5. How do you use the Trail? Please select one:
    a. Bike
    b. Walk
    c. Run
    d. Other wheeled device


    Why is this not a multiple selection?!

    Exactly. I use the trail for three of the four selections on a regular basis. I was really annoyed with the "select one"...

    I guess you have to fill the survey out three or four times to make up for it?

    This is great that they are starting to plan widening of the W&OD. A couple things I noticed were:
    - The trail alternates between widening and the dual use trail. That would be problematic for runners/walkers as you would have to criss-cross the trail back and forth which would increase conflict points. It should be one way or the other, not both.
    - There's no widening under Wilson Blvd, which is already something of a choke point. Ideally a real crossing could be put in place for the 4MR crossing of Wilson to feed off some of the capacity when busy.
