Meeting on Roland Cycle Track Wed, May 24

Meeting on Roland Cycle Track Wed, May 24

  The Roland Park Community Association will discuss a Report on the Roland Ave Cycle Track that lists substantial flaws.  The Report says that the Cycle Track has worsened conflicts between cyclists, pedestrians, and cars and has NOT achieved its goal of reducing traffic speeds.  The report cites at least five accidents between cyclists and turning cars and also mentions that five parked cars have been totaled.  The report says the cycle track is below design guidelines and has created problems between cyclists and pedestrians exiting cars, especially at Eddie's and St David's Church and Pre School.  The Report mentions that verbal conflicts between cars, cyclists, and pedestrians have increased.  THE REPORT RECOMMENDS TO EITHER RESTORE CURBSIDE PARKING WITH A WIDER, SAFER BIKE LANE AND SLOWER TRAFFIC, OR PARTNER WITH THE COMMUNITY TO CREATE A COMPLETE STREEET THAT WORKS FOR EVERYONE.
           Experienced cyclists need to be part of the process to restore Roland Ave to a decent commuter bike route.  Come to Wed, May 24 Meeting at Roland Park Elem & Middle School, 5207 Roland Ave at 7 pm.
