Latest on-street bike corral coming “within the month”

While riding home last night up the Mississippi/Albina Hill, I noticed some familiar looking staple racks in PDOT’s equipment storage yard. It was two, three-staple rack assemblies welded together; the same configuration used in the on-street bike parking corrals that are popping up all over town.

Given this story from back in July, I figured they might be awaiting installation at Por Que No tacqueria just up the street, I rolled over there to get an update from owner Bryan Steelman.

As I rode up I noticed a smiling Steelman who confirmed with me that the city has told him his new bike parking will be installed “within the month”. He pointed out “No Parking” signs that have already been installed directly in front of his popular cafe.

This new on-street bike parking facility would be the third installed on or near N. Mississippi Ave.

I live in Denver. I want to get some corals going in my town. Who can I talk to about getting the ball rolling?
