Meeting Tonight: Figueroa and Colorado Bike Lanes

Just a reminder about an important meeting tonight regarding the Figueroa and Colorado bike lane projects in NE Los Angeles. This meeting is sponsored by the area’s council member, and the NIMBY’s will be out in force with unfounded assertions about the negative effects they anticipate. We need to be there to point out that the lanes enjoy wide support, and that they will be beneficial to all residents, road users, and retailers, contrary to what “gut feelings” may spur the fearful to believe.

And don’t forget that Colorado does not need to be a speedway; a gigantic freeway runs half a block away. And Figueroa is paralleled not only by a freeway, but by a major light rail line. These rights of way should be turned back into the community streets that they were always meant to be.
