I am absolutely elated about the Market Street Improvment trials that will begin tomorrow by closing eastbound car access on Market, 7 days a week for the next 6-12 months. Last week, car traffic was backed up as traffic diverting signs were installed. Tomorrow, as I commute down Market Street, I'll ride with less cars, less stress and a big ass smile on my face. Here are a few questions that haven't been answered about this most awesome of city planning projects:
- Will the west bound bikes be on the left of the west bound cars?
- How will the right turns at 6th, and 8th be enforced (we all know signs and barricades aren't enough to stop eager and frustrated drivers)?
