Bike Path Survey
As you might have heard already, RIDOT will have crews out on the East Bay Bike Path doing a video survey of the path next Monday, June 28th. Both the Projo and WPRI have stories about what will be happening. The entire path will remain open during the survey, however there will be
a vehicle 7 feet, 2 inches wide will be traveling slowly down the bicycle path in the northbound or eastbound direction as it performs its video inventory.
Cyclists will need to either stay behind the vehicle or find a way around. The articles note that the start time will be 8:30am. I just got off the phone with the engineer in charge of the project and he said the work will commence from the Bristol side of the path and a more realistic start time is 8:45am or 9am. The articles noted that similar work is scheduled for other state bike paths and I suggested they might want to have their start time be 9:30am instead, to ensure commuters have completed their rides before running into the workers. He told me they would adjust their schedules for future work.
