Help Make St. Francis & Cerrillos Less Of A Death Trap (Updated)

Joyce Bond of the city of Santa Fe's Public Works Department passes along a flyer for a meeting every cyclist and pedestrian should probably attend.

The meeting is about the proposed bike/ped overpass at Cerrillos Road and St. Francis Drive—an intersection that's bad enough if you're driving, but flat-out if you're walking or riding a bike. Especially with the Rail Runner tracks that just love to suck up skinny tires and throw riders face-first into the asphalt, with speeding cars and trucks coming from not one but four different directions.

It's that bad.

Why show up? Because it's not a done deal. And if you think a bike/ped crossing is a good idea at this intersection, the bureaucrats and engineers in charge need to hear that. The crossing's opponents, who don't like the cost or aesthetics of the project, are pretty vocal.

Here's the deets:
Alvord Elementary School, 551 Alarid St.

Thursday, July 9, 6-8 pm
