Clerical error halts Third Street improvement
A City of Tucson clerical error in the has put the brakes on a planned project to remove stop signs and add speed tables on Third Street.
Ann Chanecka, the City of Tucson’s bike and pedestrian program manager wouldn’t elaborate on the mistake, but said it required the project to be put on hold and required working more closely with the residents in the area who opposed the change.
Chanecka said she would be going out to the people in the neighborhood to listen to their concerns and try to get their support for the project, but added support from the bike community might help get the project back on track.
“I’m going to be talking to them and trying to understand their concerns,” Chanecka said. “We are not hearing from the bike users about this project. It doesn’t hurt to hear from bicyclists.”
Cyclists who want to voice their support for the removal of the signs can send an email to Jesse Soto at firstname.lastname@example.org.
