Caltrans wants to install rumble strips on Niles Canyon

Reading section 1, CalTrans is proposing widening parts of Niles Canyon Road north of Palomares Rd. As well as installing shoulder rumble strips. There are two major problems I have with this.

1. There is a major need to address northbound Niles Canyon Road traffic turning left onto Palomares Road. It was my understanding that this proposal was to include this feature. What is needed is roadway design to include a left turn pocket. This will eliminate the need for cyclists to ride wrongway head-on into traffic.

2. Shoulder rumble strips on Niles Canyon Road. That's a non-starter.
