A loyal reader sent in this picture of Robinson Avenue going north:
The city has taken what was a four lane road and narrowed it to two.
According to a March 7, 2018 city news release:
This project with an approximate budget of $2.7 million is part of the City of El Paso’s commitment
to improve El Paso’s regional comprehensive transportation system.
According to a June 29, 2016 city news release:
As part of the project, new hike and bike trails will also be constructed, and new landscaping, irrigation, illumination, ADA compliant
sidewalks and curbs will be added to area.
Evidently the bike crowd gets to have the “bike trail” off to the right as well as the right to ride on the street where there are double yellow lines prohibiting passing.
If you get stuck behind a bicyclist going up the road you cannot pass him.
“commitment to improve”, my foot.
We deserve better
