Judging by how much nicer Greenwood Avenue is today, street sweeping crews have been through the area, hitting their Jan. 21 deadline.
Greenwood Avenue bike lanes, where most of the sand accumulated, look good for most of their length. One area that needs another pass though is 50th between Phinney Avenue and Fremont Avenue, where a serpentine trail of sand remains on the bike lane, prompting cyclists to ride further out into traffic.
In our last post about this, cyclists “j” and NZ expressed concern about this very issue. We’ve left a message with the city Department of Transportation about it. If you see a road issue you want to draw the city’s attention to, call (206) 684-ROAD (7623).
