Re: Bike Lanes

Was 6th Street ever studied for two way cycle track? Lots of space and few curb cuts.

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

I and others I know have edited google maps to suggest making it the not preferred street in it's routing. Not sure if it stuck.

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

In this discussion might be helpful to try disconnecting the cause of the closure with whom is doing it. The who isn't important.
