The BikeWalk Provo Public Works department noticed cars parked in the bike lane on 800 North. Maybe the bike lane was not noticable to them. Cyclists were swerving in an out of 25mph traffic lanes to avoid them. With just a little rearranging of traffic cones, we created a protected bike lane that both clearly designates the bike lane and creates a virtual barrier to protect cyclists from fast-moving cars. It’s amazing how much safer you can make a street with little to no money! Imagine all the other streets @provocity could do this on.

When left up to residents (as opposed to city staff), streets will almost always be designed with safety in mind. Private streets, such as those in trailer parks, usually feature traffic calming devices and lower speed limits. These should be a model for our public streets to follow.

WE DID IT Last night, after receiving “an excessive number of emails in support”, @provocity Planning Commission approved the project plan for the @brighamyounguniversity Music Building without requiring them to build new parking. We’ve also put the pressure on Provo City to work with @rideuta and BYU on building the BYU Central UVX stop. The City’s Transportation and Mobility Advisory Committee and @mayorkaufusi Administration have begun to discuss it. Now we have to keep the pressure on. Thanks for all you do!
