I posted this over on the Bike-To-Brown site as well, but it’s important enough to repeat it here. RIDOT has a request listed on the agenda for the February 13th, 2008 meeting of the State Traffic Commission (STC) to:
approve the restriction of bicycles to use the sidewalk area only on the Henderson Bridge.
Naturally, this causes some problems:
- bicycles can’t legally ride on the sidewalks, the railings are too low
- the sidewalks don’t go far enough for people traveling farther East than Massasoit Ave
The meeting is a 10am on February 13th at the State House, Room 203. We should definitely arrange to have one or more people attend.
