9391-9399 North Plaza Austin, Texas
This bicycle not one but two lane down N. Plaza running south from Rundberg is a death trap waiting to happen! The already close quartered two lane road is congested due to open parking along the west side by apartment dwellers and now it even narrower due to this debockle of a waste of tax payer money as I have seen maybe 10 bicycles in the 11 yrs I have lived there of which most were small children riding the open sidewalk with their Mothers. If we are going to go this far to plainly waste tax payers money maybe the City could have at least posted NO PARKING signs on the West side to have enough room for two vehicles to pass with out the threat of ripping side view mirrors of!!! Whom ever ok'ed this project should be required to come drive this road for a few weeks first to see the DANGEROUS SITUATION THEY CREATED FOR BOTH AUTOMOTIVE DRIVERS AS WELL AS BICYCLISTS IF ANY EVER USE IT! All this life endangerment and the left turn at the Rundberg light so narrow now many automobiles cannot pull up to light due to right turning vehicles and the near unusable right turn lane onto N Plaza without getting hit by turning vehicles! What a total mess this project has made for nearly NO useful reason save to spend money.
