In the news: PD urges ODOT to listen, plus Towpath update

Momentum continues to build!

In an editorial in today's Plain Dealer, the newspaper's editors urged ODOT to listen to their boss about investigating adding a protected lane for bicyclists and pedestrians to the Inner Belt Bridge project. Click here to read the whole editorial. Here's a snippet:

"But for Strickland's call to make a real difference, ODOT planners need to bring open minds to a review they have staunchly resisted. Ideally, they will go back to the drawing board looking for ways to provide bicycle and pedestrian access, not searching for excuses to continue blocking it."
