Where a bus island needs to be on Hawthorne, desperately.
This intersection needs a little help in the AM. It only continues to get worse too. Motorists beware.
Here’s a short review I did of the redesign. The bus island was something that really shows in this city how these should be implemented. Well designed and well built, we should have these as standard on almost all major roads with bus stops so there isn’t the existing conflict.
I’ll be producing more on the Portland Milwaukie Light Rail in the coming months, breaking out information about the new bike routes, light rail, pedestrian paths and all the improvements around the project. One of these days I’ll do a price break out so all the light rail haters can realize that a large bulk of the costs are actually for rebuilding the roadways in and around the light rail line. But until then, enjoy and happy travels!
I’m making a few changes to the upcoming Transit Sleuth TV Episodes (check out here for the current episodes).
1. Single Segments…
The episodes are going to simply be divided into their individual segments. Instead of one episode being 3 segments, or however many I’ve decided on in the past, I’ll be producing one segment per episode. These segments will still be 2 minutes to 10 minutes, with the average being somewhere around 3-5 minutes usually.
2. Released As Produced…
As each segment is produced I’ll release it, so no more 3 week waits between episodes. It might be a little bumpy at first, but there will likely be a new segment released every Sunday. There might be an extra one here or there, so be sure to subscribe to the Transit Sleuth TV Channel or just follow the Transit Sleuth blog right here (look in the upper right hand side of the blog for the follow button, then you’ll get an email delivered with every new blog entry and segment when it is released).
3. Transit Sleuth Crew…
The Transit Sleuth Crew has formed to produce larger scale productions. No, we’re still not going to produce any movie quality episodes (yet, unless you know some studios or something that are interested). But myself and several other individuals are aiming to produce some “what if” segments that are hopefully going to rock your socks! …oh, and be super entertaining too. 🙂
So, subscribe on the vimeo channel here and stay tuned for more of Portland’s very own Transit Sleuth TV.
Cheers, The Sleuth
