Polk and Cullen

Recommended Posts

so we knew that Polk was getting their bike lane upgraded, I saw they were tossing out barrels on Cullen so I pulled over and asked, they are making a bike lane on Cullen as well. I assume it will connect into what they've recently been doing on Cullen down near MacGregor.

 

effectively, this should link the trails on Brays Bayou to the bike path on Polk via Cullen.

according to that map, Cullen and Polk were part of the short term potential opportunity. guess it became short term implemented.

 

will be nice if they decide to do the same to Telephone road next!

I'm all for the configuration, just curious why even change/spend the money on Leeland? It's not a shortcut. Does anyone want to wait 20 minutes on a bike in summer heat for the slow trains to pass? Polk goes under so it makes sense. The money to spend on Leeland should be put to burying Cullen under the tracks.

I hate to admit it, but I treat the Leeland/Scott intersection as a stop sign. I never wait for a green light, just check to ensure it is safe for me to go. the only time I wait is if there are a lot of cars at the intersection. which isn't often.

The issue with those lights is going polk and leeland protected lefts - it doubles the wait times

pretend I changed my screen name to anon and am wearing a mask over my whole face

yeah, i do that too. The light takes forever and there's rarely any cars on either street

I live on Polk and have not seen any workers for a few week between Emancipation and Scott. I assume they are just working on a different portion and will come back and finish what they started. Currently, it is a mess.

I just rode on W. Cavalcade's version of this and it sucks. Those bypasses around bus stops collect trash, mud/dirt and are hard to navigate.

I live on Cavalcade and it's not that bad tbh. And they aren't even close to being finished yet. The bypass in front of my complex isn't collecting anything.
