BUUD Alert #1!

This is Bicycle-Unfriendly Urban Design (BUUD) Danger Alert #1!

Location: W Evelyn Ave and Hwy 85 onramp

Issue: Bikes exiting the Steven's Creek trail find themselves on the sidewalk, with no ramp down to the bike lane prior to this intersection. The curvature of the intersection makes visibility difficult, and cars making a right turn are frequently in conflict with bikes/peds heading west.

Proposed Solution: Cut ramp in sidewalk at junction of bike trail and sidewalk, to allow bikes to join lane where visibility is better.
