WLP Blvd. is not safe when drivers travel along at 50 - 55 MPH !!

To borrow Ralph Nader’s quote: “WLP is unsafe at any speed”. From Hopyard to the Iron Horse crossing, the many dips and swales dictate multiple lane changes to find the “least terrible ride”. Our tax dollars would be better spent fixing the road versus adding new markings and bollards for bikes.

The City is also working on repairing the street for drivers. It has taken a while for engineers to figure out how to stabilize the soil. Now that they have they will begin doing the engineering drawings. Estimates to fix the street could be $20 million or more so finding the funding is a challenge

A logical move in tandem is a speed limit reduction to 25 mph based on long term unsafe road conditions.

All for a dedicated bike lane/path. But safe traffic / road repair needs to happen immediately.

If we have funds for cricket fields, new town halls, etc, we have money for basic fundamental road repair. This thing is another injury, death, or lawsuit waiting to happen
