Requesting Your Input on Bike Lane Barriers to be Proposed for Lombard and South
May 22, the City's Office of Transportation Infrastructure ("OTIS")
presented a plan to install "flexible lane dividers" - plastic posts -
between the bike and traffic lanes along Lombard (from 22nd to the South
St. Bridge) and on South (21st-bridge) at a nonpublic meeting with
CCRA, SOSNA and the Philadelphia School.
declined CCRA's subsequent request that OTIS present its plans at a
CCRA-sponsored community meeting this June (notwithstanding Councilman
Johnson office's encouragement that they participate). OTIS's plans are
likely to be controversial with our residents and would benefit from
more, rather than less, public input and review, this springrather than
summer or fall.
