Description

The 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.
