Is it any wonder that both Strickland and Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson quickly concluded that they'd rather just add bike and walking lanes to the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge -- the outcome ODOT wanted all along?
But Brad Chase, a program manager with the eco think tank GreenCityBlueLake Institute, who discussed the bike lane with ODOT officials, says they were asking the wrong question. Instead of looking for how its current plans might be upset, ODOT could have asked firms vying to design and build the bridge how a bike lane might be safely added.
It's not too late to do so.
