Monterey Drive Alternatives

On Tuesday 17 March LB City Council approved the roadway configuration shown in Alternative 2. For a host of reasons Alternative 1 is safer and the preferred alternative by neighborhood residents. Among the reasons are to combine vehicles with similar speeds in a shared lane and improve eye-contact with all roadway users, even dogs.
Monterey Drive at Jasmine Street before modifications
Shared unmarked pedestrain buffer

Sharrows are reminders!

For motorists: the roadway is shared.

For bike riders: the safest lane-position.

Don't ride the  door-zone of parked cars like in this crash test.
