Re: “Front and Center

The laws in Memphis and unincorporated Shelby County were updated about two years ago. No more walking through intersections and cyclists can now legally ride two abreast. Bicycles are legally considered vehicles and are supposed to use the turn lane when making a turn, just like autos. Cyclists can also proceed through a red signal, after stopping and if the way is clear, if they can't trigger the sensor to change the light.

Re: “Share the Road

A section of Southern had to be left out of the initial repaving/restriping because it would require an upgrade to the unsignalized rail crossing at Greer. Once that crossing is addressed, the bike and car lanes will be consistent through that whole stretch.

What's wrong with Peabody and Linden - there's nothing to bike to! People want to be able to ride or walk to businesses in their neighborhoods. I would ask what's wrong with Madison? The bike lanes will be diverted off Madison where the trolley line starts at Watkins, and the center turn lane will keep traffic flowing at a steady rate.
