The whole point of A/B Street is for people to suggest real fixes to their city, so here's the list. In most cases, we're not yet able to use A/B Street itself to illustrate the problem or solution -- but that shouldn't stop this list from starting.
If you want to add anything here, contact us!
Disclaimer: currently this is just one person's (Dustin) list, so it reflects my experiences and biases. South Seattle is conspicuously missing -- I need to go explore more.
Safety problems biking:
- Airport Way southbound from ID to Georgetown. The right lane has a huge shoulder; at least paint a bike lane
- Broadway bike lanes missing between Highland and John
- Partitioning off a lane of Aurora at Green Lake west, proposed by Seattle Greenways
- Bike lanes vanishing halfway up Harvard to Roanoke
- The massive intersection where the Burke Gilman meets Corliss
- No passing room on Fuhrman/Boyer
Antagonistic traffic signal timing:
(Why are these important: they're hopefully a cheap change, and problems here add up, making driving the most convenient option.)
- Northbound on 11th after the University Bridge
- Turning left from 11th Ave NE to Ravenna
- The double crosswalk at Montlake / Husky Stadium
- Cherry and 12th; long cycle time for people crossing near Seattle University
- Yesler and Broadway slow beg buttons
- Unmarked beg buttons around Beacon Hill, and no bike actuators
- Beg buttons along Interurban near Bitter Lake
- Cafe/bus street along University Ave
- Eastlake cycle lanes
- Madison Safety Corridor
There's some idea related to a cycle-path on the A5
Over time, each idea will link to a full write-up. That page can have any format, but I imagine this basic structure is useful:
- Describe the problem
- A clear map showing the scope of the issue
- Include pictures and videos from a physical survey, or maybe annotated satellite imagery
- Use A/B Street to demonstrate the problem for individual people or in aggregate
- Describe the proposed solution
- Ideally A/B Street is useful for visualizing the change, and measuring quantitative results.
- Explain any limits with the modelling
- Give context on the problem
- Is this being discussed anywhere -- often on Twitter?
- Are there other proposals or write-ups?
- Give arguments against the proposed solution
- Unintended consequences, prohibitive costs, alternate routes available
