Issues: bike concern
Whitney Ave And Cliff St New Haven, CT
Getting from Edgerton Park to East Rock Park on a bicycle is harrowing experience. I recommend a new signalized crosswalk at Cliff St combined with a short two-way cycle track between Cliff St and Burns St. Closing this gap will make Edgerton Park more accessible to East Rock, Cedar Hill, and Fair Haven and it will make East Rock Park more accessible to residents of the Newhallville and Edgehill neighborhoods.
Woodward Ave And Forbes Ave New Haven, CT
Woodward Ave is a great route from East Shore and Annex to Fair Haven and even Downtown (if you don’t like the Tomlinson Bridge). Unfortunately, the short stretch over I-95 from Main St to Forbes Ave is pretty hectic and could be overwhelming for less experience bike riders. I’d be curious to hear what kind of ideas people might have to improve this section of this new bike route.
Kimberly Ave New Haven, CT
Elm City Cycling is requesting that Kimberly Ave also get bike lanes when Howard Ave gets its bike lanes next spring. If you would like to see bike lanes on Kimberly Ave, please vote for this issue!
Fountain And Forest New Haven, CT
The Westville Village Association has identified Fountain St as its top priority for a new bike route in Westville. What do you think? Should parking be restricted in order to make room for bike lanes, or would sharrows be enough? Please share this SeeClickFix issue with anyone you know who lives in the area or who might benefit from bike lanes here.
Quinnipiac Avenue New Haven, CT
The northbound lane of Quinnipiac Ave is very narrow, but the southbound lane is very wide. Traffic speeds down this road, and it is dangerous for biking. If the lanes were shifted and a bike lane added, it would be safer for drivers and bikers.
100 150 Whalley Ave New Haven, CT
Bike rack at Stop and Shop is almost completely unusable. It is not a standard rack. As a result cyclists are forced to shop elsewhere, or to lock up to things like railings and shopping carts to keep their bikes safe.
582-644 Whitney Ave New Haven, CT
Whitney is five lanes wide along this stretch; the center turning lane is overkill and a waste of space. One lane could be converted to a two-way bike route (preferably elevated 6 inches) connecting downtown to Hamden; it would make the street a lot safer for all users.
6 VotesFix it! Voted!W Northmoor Rd Peoria, IL
I use this part of Northmoor on by bicycling route and the shoulders, both east and west bound need to be improved. There is not a safe shoulder to bicycle on, so you must take a detour around it if you want to remain safe from vehicle traffic.
201 299 Lake Ave Traverse City, MI 49684, USA
Vehicles heading westbound on 8th street, then turning onto Lake St. take this turn at high rates of speed almost always crossing the double yellow line into the oncoming lane. (See image - this car is more than 50% into the oncoming lane.)
By my count, just sitting at the cafe', approx. 80% of vehicles do not stay in their lane heading westbound. This is a hazard for other vehicles (heading eastbound) and for bicycles and pedestrians especially.
Some type of calming solution needs to be employed to slow cars as they approach the turn, or direct the cars into the proper lane. A good place for the small triangle islands, like the ones on Boardman and State?
