Joyce Bond of the city of Santa Fe's Public Works Department passes along a flyer for a meeting every cyclist and pedestrian should probably attend.
The meeting is about the proposed bike/ped overpass at Cerrillos Road and St. Francis Drive—an intersection that's bad enough if you're driving, but flat-out if you're walking or riding a bike. Especially with the Rail Runner tracks that just love to suck up skinny tires and throw riders face-first into the asphalt, with speeding cars and trucks coming from not one but four different directions.
It's that bad
Why show up? Because it's not a done deal. And if you think a bike/ped crossing is a good
idea at this intersection, the bureaucrats and engineers in charge need to hear that. The crossing's opponents
, who don't like the cost or aesthetics of the project, are pretty vocal.
Here's the deets:
Alvord Elementary School, 551 Alarid St.
Thursday, July 9, 6-8 pm
