Back in late May, I blogged about Roosevelt Drive’s new sidewalk and at the end of the post, wrote:
One thing that still puzzles me, however, is the end of the trail that goes through Jefferson Park. It connects to the sidewalk but across the street, there’s a sign on the north side of Jefferson Parkway that says “TRAIL ROUTE” with a 90 degree arrow. If the intent is to signal people that now on-street walking/biking is required, it seems like there should be a curb cut there where a section of the sidewalk was just replaced. Or am I confused?
Thank you, Joe and TJ! From a distance, I saw a crew working yesterday at the Parkway entrance to Jeff Park, and hoped it was the trail/street completion. I rode past at 5:30 this morning, and it looks great! Now I won’t have to try to jump the curb. 🙂
Actually, it was Sean Simonson and Steve Bennett from the Engineering Department, working thru the Street Improvements project contractor, Heselton Construction, and their concrete subcontractor, who made this happen. I will pass on your thanks.
