Diane et al:
At the VBPC last night in Newport--wonderful ride on the new Beebe
Spur rail-trail and thanks to the hosts who led the five year battle--this
whole issue was reopened for discussion. Lane widths, shoulders (yes or no,
being part of the travel lane, speeds, etc.). Enough discusison that it
will be raised to a subgroup discussion area when the "where do we go from
here" session for the next meeting (legislation/lobbying is a sure other
discussion group topic).
Diane raises the same issue one runs into on "scenic roads." If you
make it wider, faster smoother to handle the tourist influx you destroy what
you are trying to promote!
