saw this link in the shoutbox (from mksandoz) and decided to post it, thought it was interestinghttp://www2.tbo.com/content/2009/feb/23/231703/newest-bike-trail-may-be-elevated-crosstown/
my favorite excerpt was this..Outfitting the upper deck with 54-inch barriers would cost $118,000 to $133,000, according to the authority. The expressway has permanent 32-inch barriers in place, but those aren't high enough to ensure cyclists' safety, authority officials said.
apparently a 32inch barrier is enough to stop a car going 70-90+mph, but not a biker at 20-30...
the article also said it would be closed monthly or quarterly on sunday mornings...
the article also mentions loss of 7-8k in toll revenue each time
also from reading the comments. the upper deck is closed during 'non rush hour' times.
so if the upper deck was closed anyway, how is that a loss of revenue?
