Tomorrow, Wednesday April 14th, at 2pm in City Hall, the City Council Transportation Committee will look at a motion to begin a bike corral pilot project in Highland Park, a neighborhood of Northeast LA. For a little more background check out Joe Linton and Ramon Martinez’s Streetsblog article from earlier this month.
In anticipating what we think the DOT will claim they need 60-90 days to go and find, we’ve been in touch with the Portland Bureau of Transportation who have provided us with both specific design specs for bike corrals as well as the maintenance agreement used between the property owner requesting the corral and the City of Portland. Finally, we’ve consulted multiple sources to come up with accurate figures for the costs of a bike corral. We’ll be presenting these documents to the DOT tomorrow to show that this Bike Corral project is quick, easy, and ready to go.
