    For those who don’t ride this way that much (or if you’re like me, live just a couple hundred feet away), here’s a google link. Hope it works :p

    Edit: it’s right about where the “W” is on West Kenworth.

    Thanks for the life-size pics! :lol: Zach is right, we should have markings on streets that are already reasonably bike-friendly. Why not bring attention to what we got? It’s a lot cheaper than converting one-ways too. I’d also have to add Long St to that list east of Downtown. After all;

    Keith, this is in response to your e-mail to Council member O’Shaughnessy’s office dated July 16, 2008.

    We will certainly keep you updated on the progress of this request.

    If you have questions or would like additional information, please feel free to contact me.

    Subject: Long Street Speed Limit Study and Recommendation to the T&PC

    Our apology for the short notice, however you may not need to attend as passage is expected

    The Transportation and Pedestrian Commission is scheduled to meet at 3:30 PM today in the ground floor conference room at 109 N. Front St

    The staff will recommend a speed limit reduction on Long St from Champion to Hamilton from 35 to 30

    If approved by the commissioners, we will then with council approval, (legislation), send the request for approval to ODOT

    If they approve the change the signage would then be changed after council passes the appropriate legislation.

    The process takes several months due to the required legislation.

    We will notify you of the commissions decision next week.

    More were added last night! Also, the stretch of pavement along Milton to the north of the intersection is now paved. It’s quite nice. They’re going to start working on the south side now, I believe.
