On this project, one possible mitigation for the traffic impacts of Home
Depot could be for them to pay for (or do the work for) the median shaving
necessary to stripe a northbound bike lane on Bayshore from Industrial to
Jerrold. DPT mentioned the idea to them but I believe they said their
project area was limited, or something like that. I think it would be a
good way for them to build up some goodwill with the community, and in the
whole scheme of things, it will not cost them that much, especially since
they are already doing some concrete/asphalt/signal work near the entrance
on Bayshore. Too bad they didn't take the opportunity to be more
The southbound route here is on Barneveld/Loomis, so for this section of
Bayshore, the median shaving and northbound bike lane would take care of a
big chunk of what we need on Bayshore. With the Oakdale bike lanes
recently extended, this is a good chance to continue filling in the gaps
in the area.
Anyone involved with the Home Depot effort? I think if enough people ask
for this, there is a chance they'll do it.
