Fekety wrote Hansen to encourage TriMet to improve their signage and warn bicyclists about potentially dangerous MAX crossings.
Here is an excerpt from Hansen’s response,
“Our management committee that oversees light rail system configuration will discuss at their next meeting a process for reviewing MAX crossing with bike paths and other high frequency bicycle crossings. Because of the concerns you raised in your letter, we are reviewing signage standards to determine the options for alerting cyclists to exercise caution at rail crossings.”
Fekety says she’s hopeful that the review of signage standards will result in signs being placed at dangerous intersections (including the one where she fell) and she plans to follow-up with TriMet on the issue.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with class and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
