Apropos of recent work: Bikeyface » A Walking City

I was providing comments on a project design documents for some proposed separated cycle-track/bike path improvements in a major traffic corridor/collector/highway feeder area.  There has been some discussion of the desirability of a demand triggered light phase to allow people on foot and bicycles to cross safely.  DOT response, "we're worried about backing up traffic too much".

Really, 15-30 seconds of all way stop a few times a day is going to completely destroy the traffic grid?

Apropos of this conversation, today's Bikeyface: A Walking City.
