    The Dutch demonstrate their commitment to multi-modality not just in words but in infrastructure design and construction. View this video and then imagine how the The Fern Valley Interchange might have been designed had it been located in Holland.

  • International Holocaust Remembrance Day

    Yesterday marked a day of commemoration for the victims of the Holocaust. It commemorates the genocide that resulted in the death of an estimated 6 million Jewish people, 200,000 Romani people, 250,000 mentally and physically disabled people, and 9,000 homosexual men by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. The date was designated by the United Nations. (Wikipedia)

    Judy Kerr offers this inspiring video to mark the occasion.

  • Revised sweeping schedule for Medford streets

    After receiving a comment and suggestion from a Velo member, Medford Public Works has revised their street sweeping schedule to clean the streets on their snow route schedule to hasten the removal of cinder on the more traveled roads first. Thanks to Medford for hearing our concerns and revising their approach. Below is an excerpt from the e-mail sent by the Public Works Department:

    “I spoke with the supervisor in charge of the sweeping program and we are going to shift gears and have our sweepers take our snow route maps out and focus on the designated snow routes until they are done. We are also adding a temporary employee to operate an additional sweeper to the mix.
    We will begin this protocol on Monday.

    The supervisor tells me it is pretty slow going due to the amount of material they are picking up so I can’t give you a firm estimate of how long it will take.”
