Bike Lanes & Pedestrian Improvements on Polk Look Complete

We're big fans of the "road diet" that was put into place on Polk.  While motorists may be upset, bikers and walkers should rejoice.  More signs and spaces for them!

In case you missed some of the coverage you can see a post here with plans for the changes.  In the picture above you can see the bike lanes that turn east coming from the Dearborn (north/south) bike lane.

If you look towards the top right of the picture you can also see a "crossing" sign with concrete island to help pedestrians as Polk/Plymouth Ct.

In our opinion this is great, but we will be interested to see the impact to traffic flow and auto congestion.
