Cleveland Gets Pop-Up Cycle Track

23 April 2012 No Comment

Good news, Clevelandphiles/cyclonerds.

Clevelandtown now has a green, two-way cycle track downtown. This lovely example of sustainable transportation infrastructure is to remain on display all week, educating the local populace about the latest in transportation innovation and helping build awareness of the city’s new complete streets policy.

Check out these beautiful pictures:

Anyone recognize that funny looking cyclist on the left?

This project cost $35,000 to put together (grants) and was designed by the brilliant students at Kent State University’s Urban Design Center, a group that is behind approximately 50 percent of the cool things happening in Cleveland.

Yay, us!!

Also, I asked an unnamed public official if there was any chance we could “just keep” the cycle track. He/she said no. :( But apparently, this was good training for our local transportation team!!
