Michaux to Yale was fine, and contrary to what another poster mentioned you can still turn right on Heights Blvd. from 11th street. Now Yale to N. Shepherd on 11th was a disaster. Cars were backed up several blocks due to the light on N. Shepherd. I turned left into the neighborhood and then made a right on 10th to get to my destination. Normally I would turn left on Dorothy but the backed up traffic was ridiculous. Guess what I did on my return trip…I came back on 10th Street to avoid 11th. Sorry to my neighbors that live on 10th Street! When I drove past there today, they were outlining a median that will block left turns from 11th onto Dorothy from either direction. 4 hours ago, s3mh said: Covering the ditches is the reason the ROW is insufficient. You have to curb and gutter the street if you are going to cover drainage ditches. Otherwise the streets will turn into lakes whenever there is a decent downpour. Curb and guttering streets is about a million for a few blocks. It would be infinitely more expensive to put a bike path on the cross streets. Having gone on 11th st a bunch of times during morning and evening rush hour since the build out and living near the alleged cut through streets, I am actually quite surprised at how well it is working and how little change in traffic there is (other than eliminating the Death Race 2000 that used to take place on 11th every day). That's been my experience as well, other than some delays where construction activities are taking place. Yesterday, I drove down Studewood from Cavalcade, then turned on 11th heading West., No issues, other than the parents picking up their kids at Field creating a backup there, but that's a Studewood issue.
