There is only one (of two) pedestrian paths open across the Broadway bridge right now. They have pinch points that were being flagged for safety and perhaps efficiency, but they seem to have given up on flagging.
I’ve used other options when possible, but twice this week I was riding on routes that virtually force me to use Broadway to head into the Pearl or NW District.
So, here’s my solution. Some may already do this, same may choose to take (at least) 3 signal-controlled crosswalks to get there they want to be. I won’t.
Generally speaking, there’s enough room to the right of the streetcar tracks. And it’s not like bike lanes are foolproof either- this happened as I was descending on the Lovejoy ramp.
