Description

The new West Howard lane striping is a complete failure. Cars turning right off any side street cannot make the turn without crossing the yellow lines into oncoming traffic as the lanes are too narrow and too close to the houses.

Cars are still speeding on West Howard but are now doing so in narrower lanes closer to the homes and walking pedestrians. Deliveries to all homes completely stop all eastbound traffic as there is nowhere for trucks to pull over in front of houses.

The Path side next to the train tracks is not used by pedestrians as much as the sidewalk on the north side since all the homes and businesses except Valero are on the north side of the street.

This project has made West Howard more dangerous for cars, pedestrians, cyclists and homeowners. The extra space needs to be on the North side where the homes are located, not next to the Path which already provides for safe walking and cycling.
