Bike boulevard experiment is scaled back
Workers today were out on Humboldt Street in Santa Rosa removing the circular traffic roundabouts that were part of the experimental traffic approach designed to have cars and bicyclists share the road.
As was reported earlier, the primary change is to eliminate traffic circles at four intersections along the 1.5-mile route. Also, stop signs will be restored on four streets that cross Humboldt — Silva, Carr, McConnell and Spencer avenues. Only McConnell, the site of a neighborhood market, will have a four-way stop. Speed tables will be installed at seven Humboldt intersections as part of a compromise.
What do you think of the city’s bike boulevard experiment? Can bicyclists and motorists co-exist on Sonoma County roads? Weigh in with your comments below.
