Issues: bike concern
5 VotesFix it! Voted!Connecticut 72 Plainville, CT
A 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?

There is a section of shoulder missing climbing the hill up Independence East of the Stanley Lake @#$%. This is a major bicycle commuting route which is pretty nice except for this small section.

Two lane high speed road, no shoulder, of course no bike lane. Two lane bridge with no room. There is an underpass but in bad weather the unpaved trail is not rideable (mud) and the increased distance is not conducive to serious transportation. One of the few "escape" routes from scary Westminster to safer Broomfield.

As a major commuting route, the BDCT should be paved so it melts quicker in the winter and is road bike friendly.
The trail also really needs a gravel shoulder in addition to the paved path, as many runners come to the trail to run without the pounding of pavement. I know several running groups that meet at city park for runs because of the gravel trail.

Other than Ansleigh/Cardinal Grove sidewalks. There are now sidewalks on Kyle between Valley Stream and Hwy 401. in N. Raleigh. People traveling from these or surrounding houses whether bicycle walk along the edge of road. Sometimes unseen because of approaching headlights.

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?
