Bicycling Advocates Needed Part II - Want to help?


Source: vicsclassicbikes.blogspot.com


Chapter I:  11/2/11  began a quest to get better signs at the dangerous Southwood Lane bicycle crossing: http://jbw0123.blogspot.com/2011/11/civic-activism-save-me-from-this.html






Chapter II:  Progress.  Lee Shoemaker, City of Eugene's Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator called back -- he's a good guy.  He referred the suggestion on to Steve Gallup of the Public Works Department.  Steve called and left a message saying that there is a months-long backlog ahead of this particular problem, but he will add it to the list.


Another bicycling blogger working on the same issue posted a great diagram of the intersection:
