    Bike lane on Lincoln Ave

    The road diet trial on Lincoln Avenue in San Jose turned a scary 4-lane road into a pleasant street with bike lanes that makes you want to stroll along and linger longer. Please, City of San Jose, make the road diet on Lincoln Avenue in Downtown Willow Glen permanent.

    I was pleased to see a new bike lane with a working sensor at a tricky intersection. Too bad the green phase is so short you’re left stranded in the intersection. Hopefully the Traffic Engineer for Santa Clara County Roads & Airports can help.

    Construction fencing and signs block driver's view of the crosswalk across Central Expressway.

    What can make a crosswalk that’s poorly visible to right-turning cars even worse? Adding opaque construction fencing that extends to the curb. Where I had hopes of improving this risky crossing, what’s there now is downright deadly. The fencing and sign need to be moved or removed today!
