Dear Houston Bikeways, I'm saddened to have such a story to share about my ambush and robbery on the Buffalo Bayou Trail in EADO on Sunday, September 20 at 10:30am. Do you know if there is any public safety agency that patrols these trails or otherwise is tasked with ensuring their security?
The Police need to support the bicycle commuters by ticketing the vehicles and trash cans placed in bike lanes.
I went to the Post Office (634 West Calvacade) today after that rain shower and noticed that the floating bus stop just east of the USPS is blocking rain from draining in the street. There is a large puddle 4" to 6" deep in the road that can no longer get to the storm drain on the other side of the floating bus stop. Can you get someone to take a look at the storm water drainage issue created by this floating bus stop?
They are currently pouring ramps with platform near the vehicle lanes on Cavalcade near I-45. They appear to reduce vehicle traffic to one lane or two very narrow lanes with a swerve / vere to go around these stations. What is the purpose of these stations?
