Over the past five years, the residents in the area and WUNA have sought solutions for the traffic situation on 5th St. The bollards (skinny black & white poles) on 1st and 2nd Aves. to block cars from 6th St. turning up those streets were installed. And although that installation brought on problems elsewhere, that was it. Nothing more has been done. I'm not very hopeful about the resources the city might bring with it for creating the bike route on 5th. It seems maybe creating congestion is their best answer for a bad traffic situation. The city is aware of the pros and cons associated with whatever projects it wants to do. It powerpoints the pros and sets the residents and users up to be the eternal doom-sayers and curmudgeons. I'm not the professional. It might be good to hear from the bike/ped coordinator how he thinks the problems associated with several dozen to a few hundred bikes crossing Euclid at 5th St. daily in an uncontrolled setting might manifest themselves.
