The Bicycle Transportation Alliance announced Tuesday that Southeast Foster Road is among its top priorities to become one of the city's best bikeways. But at an open house Tuesday night about rethinking the street, there was only one type of bike infrastructure on the menu.
What happened to the ideas for a cycle track separated by plastic bollards and an auto parking lane? Or a shared bike-pedestrian sidewalk like on the Hawthorne Bridge? The city project manager says there's just no room to do them right unless you also remove either a lane of auto parking or a center turn lane.
