Bike Durham asks the city to revisit the Club Blvd design

Following on the release of our policy statement regarding implementing Complete Streets design in Durham, Bike Durham sent a letter to Durham's Department of Transportation Director Mark Ahrendsen, Mayor Bill Bell, Council Member Don Moffitt (Council Liaison to BPAC), Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator Dale McKeel and Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission Chair Erik Landfried asking that the city reconsider the existing design for W. Club Blvd. From the letter:

Policy Paper: Call for Standard Use of Complete Streets in Durham Road Design

Complete Streets is an approach that acknowledges the need for many different types of users to have safe and easy access to our community’s roads and thoroughfares. This approach has design and planning elements that require transportation networks to be designed with all users in mind and requires that planners make all right of ways safe and accessible to all users regardless of age, mobility, or mode of transportation.
