One reply on “Slow Down. Shared Street.”

  1. Because the streets on either side of Greenleaf do not cross the railroad tracks just west of Chicago Avenue, it’s a long and traffic-heavy way around to cross the tracks at Main or Dempster for those who live near Greenleaf and need to get to the other side. So if this does get made permanent, I’d recommend more car-dominant treatment of the block between Chicago and Sherman.

    As a bicyclist who lives 3 houses south of Greenleaf on Hinman, I bike it frequently: down to the beach as well as up to the Channel parks. Except for pickup and drop off times at Nichols, I have found it to be quite safe and free of traffic previous to the current test. And sidewalks appear to work well for pedestrians.
