SWFBUD Gets Hillsborough County To Fix Fletcher Avenue Bike Lane Design

SWFBUD contacted Hillsborough County Public Works after the department re-surfaced Fletcher Avenue at 56th Street, but failed to configure the intersection with a bike lane that goes through the intersection.

As you can see, the bike lane veers to the right of the right-turn bike lane -- which is NOT the proper way to confugure the bike lane at this intersection, or any intersection.

So, SWFBUD spoke with the county's public works director and also wrote emails. They did the job. SWFBUD wants to thank Hillsborough County for addressing this issue promptly, as you can see by this photo showing a proper bike lane configuration on Fletcher Avenue at 56th Street.

Very nice job. It's good to see that someone is holding someone accountable for terrible engineering mistakes like this.
