Bike Lane Love?

The eastbound bike lane on Forbes between Dallas and Braddock is starting to fill up with debris, yesterday there was a fresh deer carcass in the lane – too bad I’m vegan.

Would anyone like to join me next week to clean up this lane? We’d just need shovels and rakes to move the dirt, sticks, and leaves back into Frick Park. A few trash bags wouldn’t hurt either.

Bike Lane: noun, being that part of the street in which motorists toss garbage, and street cleaning crews push road debris. Many cities are adding bike lanes to aid in sanitation.

@sgernot, I’d probably have some time next week to help with this. However, it’d definitely be worth a shot to make a 311 report first. The city has been pretty responsive about keeping the forbes lanes swept.

Here’s the online form. Or you can dial 311.

311 should do the trick.

311 – thanks for the reminder. Could everyone send in something like:

City of Pgh,

The eastbound bike lane on Forbes Avenue between Dallas and Braddock Avenue is filling with debris. To avoid the debris cyclists will be forced into the street increasing the likelihood of a collision. Please send a street sweeper and crew asap to clean up this lane.

Thank you for your help with this matter. Together we can make Pittsburgh a safer city for cyclists.

the 311 form is a http://www.city.pittsburgh.pa.us/mayor/html/311_request_form.html

I really hope nick scored that deer carcass before the city did.
