As many of you have probably experienced driving between the Y and Highland Heights the state has re-configured the old 4-lane road to a 2 lane road with a center turn lane. I was very disappointed that more defined and wider bike paths were not included in the reconfiguration.
A recent article on Cincinnati.com sheds some light on what the state was thinking as they indicate the road was not wide enough to accommodate the turn lane and bike paths. The highway department's spokesperson indicates "dedicated bike lanes could not be included in this project due to roadway width restrictions."
What do you think? Personally the turn lane appears to be wider than normal and I would really like to see a wider shoulder for bike path.
