Be very careful crossing the tracks on your bike. Go slow and cross perpendicular to the rails. Signage is desperately needed. See http://groups.yahoo.com/group/elmcitycycling/message/8023

Last year, in their Downtown Bicycle and Pedestrian Gap Analysis (http://www.cityofnewhaven.com/TrafficParking/pdfs/GapAnalysis2009.pdf), Nelson\Nygaard Consultants recommended a physically separated bike lane—or cycle track—on Elm Street. How would you design such a facility? View a 3D mock-up of two potential designs here and offer your suggestions. Don't like it? Download Google SketchUp to your computer here: http://sketchup.google.com/ and then download my drawings here: http://www.box.net/shared/z8e1db4ssq and give it your best shot.
For cycle track design guidelines and best practices, have a look at this design guide from the National Association of City Transportation Officials: http://nacto.org/cities-for-cycling/design-guide/cycle-tracks/
and this report from bicycle-oriented transportation planning consultants at Alta Planning: http://www.altaplanning.com/cycle+tracks.aspx
4 VotesFix it! Voted!240 Maple Ave North Haven, CT 06473Streets everywhere are unsafe for bicyclist. I worry about taking my kids on bike rides and hesitate to ride my bike to work. I'd like to see dedicated motorcycle and bicycle routes like those found in the Netherlands.
Thanks! Thanked!177-191 Burnside Ave East Hartford, CT 06108, USA
Burnside Avenue is without lane markings for most of road. No side lanes, bike lanes, pedestrian safety markings.
Contributes to a sense of no laws apply on this street. Parking lanes, safe pedestrian crossing markings, etc. are all missing.
Like someone not painting their house and watching it rot.
Nearest To 530 Heacock Road
Large potholes straddling the railroad tracks are deep enough to force bike riders to dismount and probably makes the crossing impossible for wheelchairs. A cyclist going at full speed would likely suffer an accident (right on top of active railroad tracks) and a person in a wheelchair could become stuck if attempting to cross.
As the picture shows, drivers on Heacock Road do not have any potholes.
45 VotesFix it! Voted!Kimberly Avenue Bridge Between West Haven And New HavenThe Kimberly Avenue Bridge connecting West Haven and New Haven is extremely dangerous and makes traveling between the cities by bicycle very difficult. The east-bound traffic heading for the I-95 on ramp treats the right lane as part of that ramp and routinely accelerates to 50+ mph. There is no shoulder, cars cut each other off to gain position, the lane is often littered with broken glass and in the winter, the sidewalk goes uncleared, forcing pedestrians into the road.
5 VotesFix it! Voted!Connecticut 72 Plainville, CTA newly completed road without the ability for cyclists to activate signal change riding east or west on E. Main St. (Forestville) or Forestville Ave. (Plainville). There does exist a pole mounted button, but it is located on the north side of the roadway, adjacent to a sidewalk. By the time a cyclist headed west dismounts to activate the button and gets back on the bike, the signal will change from green to red for the cyclist half way through this already wide and dangerous intersection.
Can the trip wires in the paving be made to activate an automatic change at the traffic controller at this intersection?
