Making Tech a Better Place to Bike
Thursday (the 25th of October) at 7pm in CULC room 152 we’ll be hosting a townhall and charette session to discuss some major projects going on at the BIIC:
- Possible dismount zones/signage along Tech Walkway to reduce conflicts between cyclists and pedestrians
- Changes to bike lanes on Ferst Dr/5th between Klaus Computing and Tech Square to reduce conflicts between cyclists and motorists
- Different potential avenues for addressing the need for further bike racks on campus.
These three issues are major priorities, and we’ll be discussing ACTUAL options for addressing these issues, as well as soliciting feedback and additional suggestions from participants. This is your chance to help direct some major bike-related choices!
Though the aforementioned issues are priorities, we also welcome input on how we can reduce other conflicts around campus between cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists, and suggestions for what you’d like to see in the area around Tech in terms of bicycle-related improvements would be welcome also (as are any other bike-related topics you want to bring up to administrators and the BIIC!). Members of the Bicycle Infrastructure Improvement Committee (BIIC), which is tasked with identifying and implementing improvements for bicycling around the campus (over the last two years they have secured over $100,000 for said improvements), will be on hand to hear you feedback and suggestions.
Basically, if you want to have your voice heard, this is the time and place to do it!
