Memorial Broad Street Bridge

Yesterday the Broad Street Bridge opened. I was the first bicyclist to cross it. I participated in the community feedback group that gave the architects input on the design. There were those that wanted two lanes of traffic both ways and there was the group that wanted one lane each direction, wide sidewalks and bike lanes. I am glad I participated and spoke out loud to advocate for bike lanes.

I rode across the new bridge last night and this morning on my commute. The bridge is beautiful. When you get your chance to participate in a community feedback group, take the time to put in your ideas, it is worth it.
