Nearly every point of access to this corner of Midtown and Montrose is under attack. My family and I live a few blocks from here, and we have to use these roads for school, work, errands, etc. Every new "traffic calming" feature adds up to steal a lot of time from us.
We walk the neighborhood and take the train a lot, but never see all the folks clamoring for ever grander pedestrian projects. I suspect a new walkway would get used as much as the Gray Street bicycle lane. It sounds like a great idea until it's time to lace up the running shoes in August.
Thousands of people actually use the bridge, dozens of people say they will use a walkway. Seems pretty straightforward.
