  1. Am I correct in assuming that wheelchair accessibility is maintained through the curb extension piece and sufficient space through any poles? Cant tell from the pictures.....

  2. It's cute, and preposterous that they think this will do anything except make parking harder. People are still going to zip down the street. And am I correct that there will be no bump-outs at V & W?

  3. This seems like a good compromise to me. If the flexipost curb extensions work well, maybe DDOT will eventually make them permanent with new curb.

  4. It's a good way to get people used to potential future extensions, and to find out where pinch points might exist, before dedicating major funding to realigning the road.

  5. The current plan calls only for the white painted bump out lines on the pavement, with plastic ballads and an average of 2 large planters at every intersection. DDOT will not paint the intricate painted designs on the pavement. Those designs would have to be decided and painted in the future by someone other than DDOT. Some intersections will loose maybe 5-18 feet of parking space because the residential parking signs are located too close to an intersection. TO accommodate bicyclists, there should be about 30 inches between the ballads and car traffic, so can bikes can safely pass between parked cars and moving car traffic. Speed bumps were discussed, but for now, that is not part of the plan. The intersections will remain handicapped accessible, as they currently are.
