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?
