West Shoreway Meeting in Columbus

A coalition from the City of Cleveland, Bike Cleveland and some Cleveland neighborhood groups will be traveling to Columbus December 15 for a 10:00 a.m. Ohio Department of Transportation (1980 W. Broad Street, Columbus OH 43223) meeting regarding the West Shoreway Project.The meeting will determine whether the city receives funding for Phase II of the West Shoreway Project, which would include landscaping and some safety improvements to the road with the goal of reducing the road speed to 35 miles per hour.Although Phase II of the project does not include any bike improvements, Bike Cleveland has decided to support the City in this effort because they have indicated that safety improvements are a prerequisite to the bike infrastructure that has been promised in Phase III.In addition, the City has promised Bike Cleveland the following things:? That they will discuss providing an alternative bikeway between Lakewood and Downtown to make conditions better for cyclists until the West Shoreway project is complete,? That they will include representatives of Bike Cleveland in the further planning process for this project,? That there will be an update to the City?s Bikeway Master Plan, and? That they will allow us to close the West Shoreway for a day this coming summer for a ?Walk and Roll?/Ciclovia-type of event.Those who attend this day-long event should know beforehand that no public comments will be accepted at the ODOT meeting. The event, however, will provide advocates with opportunities to interact with top city and state officials and could provide an important grassroots lobbying opportunity for this new organization.Buses will be leaving from the Gordon Square parking lot at W. 61st Street and Detroit at 6:15 the morning of December 15th, returning at 5:00 p.m. the same day. Lunch will be provided. Contact us at chris@bikecleveland.org if you can join us on the bus.If you want to bike to Columbus, Alex Nosse, co-owner of Joy Machines Bike Shop, will lead a group that will leave Cleveland on December 13th and return on December 17th.
