Louis Road bike boulevard?

Original post made by Driver, Palo Verde, on Apr 28, 2018

We drove down Louis today to get to Oregon, something we only do at weekends.

What is happening? The road is narrow and it looks like the bike lane is gone.

Also there are no stopping signs right beside a stop sign? How can you not stop at a stop sign?

Ross is ruined. Louis is being ruined. Will Greer be next? Are we going to be imprisoned in our neighborhood? Does this mean that the only way to drive north south will be Bayshore or Middlefield.

As for bikes. Louis is not safe now and Ross forces bikes to mix with vehicles. Many parents are telling their kids not to ride on Ross.

We are spending big bucks on this fiasco, but we still don't get a bridge over 101. Priorities are completely wrong in Palo Alto.

Thanks for posting that. You've got no stopping at stop signs. And Middlefield doesn't need much more traffic. We've got thru traffic merge right, thru traffic merge left signs alternating.

And with this news about Louis, there goes one to my "jughandle turns" I've had to use to head south since traffic and new barriers prevent me from making a left turn out of my driveway without going miles out of my way to head south on Middlefield.

Not a great way to reduce traffic.

"Not a great way to reduce traffic."

Agreed. The only way to reduce traffic is to convince anyone who can to get out of their car. None of these road designs are intended to reduce traffic.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
