I rode the new paving earlier today, and most likely I’ll be there with tools to help clear the jungle if FOTR is allowed to do that. I worry about Karina guessing that the trail could be opened by the end of the year when asked about it at the Smallman St. meeting. Not a stretch goal. I worry that when Buncher starts on the next apartment building in the Spring, the trail could close again for a couple more years.

My point is that we should press for a firm stand on maximizing trail access. It’s especially important with Smallman under construction.

Flooding, yes it prevents the trail from replacing the on-street lanes. Right now there is 2-3 inches of muck on the trail under the bridges, from the last flood.

In the Strip District along Railroad St., there is a crossbuck above the westbound stop sign at 25th St. and 26th St. Railroad St. dose not cross the track at either of these intersections. Why is there a crossbuck on westbound Railroad St. at these intersections? The crossbucks on 25th St. and 26th St. make sense because they actually cross the track.

I don’t know that I can explain it. Either for historical reasons – maybe there used to be a crossing? – or that some obscure bit of traffic law requires one, even if the actual crossing is around the corner.

Also, I never knew those were called crossbucks, so thank you for increasing my vocabulary today.

Also, there are no crossbucks on the outbound approaches to any of the intersections or where the tracks cross  Railroad St. between 21st St. and 22nd St.

More Strip Trail updates… It’s kind of open, kind of not. The new ‘Railroad Street Extension” is my current route through here now from 18th to Lawrenceville. A disconnected trail really isn’t very helpful.
