Re: “Spring's downtown bicycle infrastructure progresses despite growing pains

I work downtown and Weber Street is a mess! I get why and the benefit but turning it to one lane each way has turned a downtown north/south major thoroughfare into traffic chaos especially with the added road construction and building construction taking place.

Cars are still driving in the bike lane thinking it's a turn lane and those waiting to get into Dutch Brothers use the bike lane as a waiting line. The vertical delineators do help somewhat but now they limit the space when a vehicle turns left from an east/west street onto Weber, especially if cars are stopped at the light on Weber. I would not even consider parking my car on Weber now. And if the delineators are removed for the plows, that's going to be even more interesting when we do have snow on the road.

It's been a couple of months and people still pull up behind the parked cars thinking it's a lane (it's actually kind of funny to watch their reaction - honking and yelling at the empty parked cars in front of them). Because Weber is no longer an easy north/south route, Nevada and Wahsatch are experiencing more traffic.

Re: “Election results start pouring in, voters friendly to gov asks

nobuddysfuuul, you do realize 1A included all El Paso County residents and those eligible to vote for 2A were limited to only residents within the Colorado Springs city limits?

Re: “Reader: Where does the Springs fall on the tolerance spectrum?

Mike, you are quick to call someone out on what you perceive to be intolerance but you spew "Liberals have no morals values or common sense." and "Democrats will never win another election due to their intolerance of conservative viewpoints. " Hmmmm....pretty much the pot calling the kettle black.

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs police chief to Douglas Bruce: You're 'obnoxious'

Note to Spydra: You're a hack; do yourself a favor and do a little research before you post. At the very least substantiate your claims.

Re: “Reader: Citizens should question bike race expenses

The event actually received LART monies to help offset some of the event costs such as police, barricades, etc. LART is tax collected from those staying in hotels and renting cars so pretty much paid for by tourists.

Re: “Colorado Classic cycling race starts in the Springs, attracts world-class cyclists

I think cyclists rather than bikers is a more appropriate term. My husband is a biker but I don't think they'll let him ride his Harley in the bike lanes. ;-)
