RIDOT Holding Public Meeting for Pawtucket segment of Blackstone Bikeway

RIDOT will be holding an open information session on October 11th at 7PM to share information and discuss concerns brought by residents in the Taft Street and Alfred Stone Road sections related to the Blackstone Valley Bikeway routing along those roads.  Community members in this area have expressed opposition to the striping and signage for the path after work began recently.

The meeting is open to the public.  No mention is given of what the specific opposition is to the signage and or lane striping.  If you live in Pawtucket, especially near this segment of the bike path, this meeting is your chance to learn the plans and have your voice heard.

    I hope bike advocates will come to this meeting and show support as once again there is some push-back from a few local residents, this time along Taft Avenue who say they are afraid they will lose a few parking spots, and so the Pawtucket City Council was asking RIDOT to look into another route, something RIDOT was apparently not happy about. At least this is the gist of a story about this in the current edition of the Valley Breeze, Pawtucket edition.
