Just went by at about 7am. From the trestle near the Convention Center heading toward L-Ville is blocked off and not accessible until at least 16th St. Not sure why, but i figured i’d give anyone heading into town a heads up.
I did see some light poles in the parking lot near there, could possibly be for the trail? I’m not sure.
Blahhh. I like riding that trail home in the mornings. After 3rd shift Mon and Tue. I really don’t care much for traffic and dealing with the insane rushrushgoasfastaspossible crowd around the city at 7-8am.
Ugh, this sucks. I’ve been snaking my way through the parking lots, which isn’t great, but can still be better than Smallman. At least the trail from the convention center to the point is fully open again.
Same. I’ll take that left into the parking lots, past the jersey barriers and you can get to Railroad/22nd. through them. The guy that runs the lot at the very end is always super pleasant though when i hop his chain or monster truck around it.
“The Three Rivers Heritage Trail between 11th and 22nd Street in the Strip District will be closed for underground utility work through ***Fall 2014***. Trail traffic will be detoured to Smallman Street during this time.”
Stu, I think you’re just used to it. And frankly, so am I now, because I haven’t been able to ride on the trail for ages. The stretch between 16th and 11th just strikes me as particularly dangerous because of the way the cars are parked, and the fact that you have wide, unmarked lanes without clarity about who should be where.
11th to 16th isn’t so bad, it’s the bit between 16th and 21st, alongside the Produce Terminal, that’s so wretched. The fact that the pavement’s falling apart, especially in the intersections, doesn’t help, either…
I guess I do put up with a lot of crap. For example, I regularly take outbound Liberty from Grant or even Wood out to 31st St at rush hour. Penn is one-way, and Smallman is out of the way, in addition to all the stop signs (that I do stop for). I’ve never even thought about working my way over to the trail.
