Update 3: See my comment below asking for desired connections and "desire lines" within the Casey area. I need to provide this feedback at the Working Advisory Group meeting.
Update 2: The first public meeting discussing the replacement of the overpass is this Wednesday March 16th. See blog post below
Do you ride/walk/drive under or over the Casey overpass? Community meetings around the impending removal and replacement of that span are coming soon, so I'd like to use this blog post to solicit comments from JP Bikes members on how they feel about the current effectiveness and safety of that entire multi-road intersection. You are also welcome to comment on how it works as a pedestrian, driver, or transit user. Here are a few questions you can use to get started, but feel free to comment on whatever aspect of the project you want to. There's a comment box at the bottom of this page.
Do you ride through this intersection regularly? What time and how frequently? From where and to where are you typically going?
In what ways have you optimized your route or your schedule to avoid traffic or other inconvenience?
Do you ride on the sidewalk at any point?
Have you found it useful to ride over the overpass?
If you are going to/coming from the Southwest Corridor path, how do you get there?
Comment on where you see the most traffic backed up
Describe specific dangerous or confusing crossings
Describe any accidents you may have had
Please stay tuned for announcements about meetings. We expect there to be a lot of talk about car traffic and flow, so to advocate for bike accomodations and safety, we need input from as many actual users of that area as possible. Thanks!
