Narrowing a traffic artery: Brilliant!

Written October 7th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

I’d like to know what Albany’s streetscape designers were thinking when they decided to put chokepoints on the the main downtown thoroughfare, already hard-pressed to handle traffic during busy parts of the day.


On Lyon, less space for cyclists

Written September 21st, 2017 by Hasso Hering

I wonder if this is what the designers had in mind: Putting the sidewalk that close to heavy traffic in front of the new Albany Fire Department’s Station 11 and Hasty Freez, one of the best burger-and-shake joints in town.


More bulbouts, and a question

Written May 29th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

The official name, I think, is sidewalk extensions. But you can also call them bulbouts. They’ve been a favorite of street planners for years, and Albany is getting a bunch more as part of the CARA streetscape project that’s going to start in June.
