    The Brighton Blvd flyover overall looks great. Love some of the features, e.g., planters between the road and bike lane near curb cuts.

    Only question: why didn’t they put the bike lane next to the sidewalk on the other side of the trees? It is so much less stress to ride next to a busy street when there are trees between you and the speeding cars.

      More stress for the pedestrians would be my guess.

        Poor wittle pedestriams….

What Will It Take for Sacramento to Make Walking Safer in Poor Neighborhoods?

Police and city planners in Sacramento have come under scrutiny in the weeks since police were caught on tape assaulting Nandi Cain, Jr., a black man, during a jaywalking stop. Cain, who was legally using an unmarked crosswalk, has since filed a civil rights lawsuit against the city. Now, reporters are looking into why there are so few marked crosswalks in one of Sacramento's poorest areas.
