I was at the meeting. There was actually considerable community support for bike lanes of some kind at the table I was at - and reciprocally, cyclist support for things the community wants, such as changes to slow cut through traffic on Scroggins, improved treatments at crosswalks (medians, RFBs, etc) T&ES liked all those ideas, and appeared to be leaning toward either flexpost PBLs or buffered bike lanes or a mix, depending on the need for driveway access. There was some pushback against bike facilities later with the usual memes of traffic and the need to accommodate cars on a state road. The folks who live closer to Quaker where traffic races had a different perspective than those who live near Janneys, where it backs up.

Oh, and T&ES said that it would depend on their traffic studies. But from what I have heard, the claim that there are backups north of Janney's lane is an exaggeration, and in any case the King/Callahan intersection improvements should lessen the back ups.

Note, there is no on street parking here, so that is not an issue. Continued input will still be important though.

I look forward to the expansion of the King Street bike lanes to Braddock Road. The pedestrian improvements would be great as well.

Because there is no left turn from westbound King Street onto westbound Braddock (and southbound Quaker by extension), I hope that they incorporate signage to guide cyclists onto Kenwood then left onto Braddock.
