Not commenting on the construction piece, b/c it is done. Damage is done, & we have it until the next overhaul.

My question is why are cyclists on the sidewalk? A four lane road, & cyclists are using the sidewalk. When I bike ride, I use the road. That is how I was taught. Have rules changed involving bicycles?

Lastly, since when does ODOT, or any road creation entity consult bicycle riders? Did they consult with the pedestrian consortium or local hitch hiker guild?

Is the bicycle guild consulting with the skate boarders united bunch before planning anything? How about the pet walkers or baby sitting stroller union?

speaking of that project in general its got to be one of the worst new highways ive ever drove on.Its ponds water all over which shows the poor workmanship and all the men on the job was from out of this area so they wasn't worried about having to drive on it.And for the sidewalk the residents in the area didn't want it anyways it just carries more riff raff from town to Reno.Shelly and sands is a real joke we had a lot of local boys out of work in the area and they used all out of town labor.

Hey at least the sidewalks are clear of manhole covers it is like a mine field driving out there too bad they didn't have a good engineer to put the manholes beyond the curbs. Wow poor design but who signed off on it did he get a bonus

ODOT made so many stupid decisions on the project that the Project manager and project engineers on that project would have been fired if any of them worked for a private company. My guess is the when the project was completed they all got raises.
