Southern Oregon's Premier Cycling Club

Fern Valley Interchange - Unfinished Bike Lanes

by Gary Shaff on Mar, 8 2017

Shoulder Stripe (four inch)

Look as you travel on N. Phoenix Road north of Grove Road and you’ll see that ODOT’s contractor has stripped, what was supposed to be a bike lane, as a shoulder. The project’s environmental documents provided that bike lanes would be six feet wide throughout the project except along Highway 99 where they would be five feet. The width is fine but the stripping is not. The Club has sent a letter to the Oregon Transportation Commission asking that the project be completed as detailed in the environmental impact statement (EIS) or, more precisely, the environmental assessment. The Club’s letter is HERE.

Is this BS or what? No, just the preliminary marking for a Bike Symbol
