The New Jefferson Viaduct Cycletrack
March 13, 2013 § 5 Comments
No doubt you’ve heard several of the local television stations and news sources do stories about the closing of the Houston St. Viaduct for construction on the upcoming streetcar line. With that change came a seriously planned reconfiguration of the traffic flow on the Jefferson St Viaduct, it’s younger, and less architecturally interesting partner.
In that reconfiguration, our community gained a first of it’s kind: an on-street, two-way cycle track allowing anyone from age 8 to age 80 wishing to ride a bicycle across the Trinity River safely.
Here’s a first person point of view taken 12:30pm, Monday, 3/11:
We’d like to thank, Councilman Scott Griggs, Keith Manoy, Max Kalhammer, Jared White, and the many other city of Dallas staff and representatives who’ve helped see this come to fruition. This is certainly a huge step forward in making Dallas a safer, friendlier place to ride a bicycle!
