Answer Man: Can Merrimon Avenue ‘road diet’ be reversed? What’s going in next to Fletcher Elementary?
Today’s round of questions, my smart-aleck replies and the real answers:. Question: Whenever time is available, and I hope you’re not snickering, can you see what the status of the Merrimon Avenue bike lane diet review is, since I think it has almost been a year, sans a few months, since it opened? I have seen a lot more traffic on Edwin Place and Kimberly Avenue, but worse than that, Merrimon comes to a crawl between eight and 10, and noon until after rush hour. It’s always been busy, but with the lane reduction and added bike lanes, it’s really amped up. It took me almost 20 minutes to get from Fresh Market near Beaver Lake to the Shell station at I-240. Normally, pre-road diet, it was an easy four to five minutes, if you hit all the lights. The frustration comes when I have seen maybe four bikes on the bike lanes traveling Merrimon in the last three months. Does the city still stand behind turning it back to four lanes if this “experiment ” didn’t work?
