Description

Welcome Tom Corbett!

Dear PennDOT, Congratulations! You've outdone the City of Philadelphia by way of your contempt for cyclists and pedestrians.

03/01/11 - complainant bikes to work w/o incident
03/01/11 - complainant returns home only to find kelly drive blocked with a sign stating that the path would be closed starting 02/28. The sign suggests the ridge avenue sidewalk as an alternate.

Problem 1: Today is March 1. You failed to provide any notice and proceeded to block our way home.

Problem 2: With the exception of designated bike paths like Kelly Drive, cyclists are forbidden from riding on sidewalks

Problem 3: You've put us directly at the intersection of a work zone, a highway onramp, a road onramp with no consideration whatsoever for our safety, pedestrians and cyclists alike

I just wanted to say "thanks for nothing." Expect me to ride my bike in the middle of traffic as is my right as a "motor vehicle" (cyclist) under state law.
