Harbor Way South at Wright Avenue
Richmond
US

description

Today (1-20-2011), just after 5 pm, a commuter cyclist who was travelling south-bound on Harbour Way South caught his wheels in the railroad tracks while attempting to execute a turn onto the east-bound Wright Avenue bicycle lane. This solo bicycle crash resulted in moderate to severe facial injuries, and an unknown number of other injuries, to this helmeted rider who was removed from the scene in a semi-conscous state -- but not moving at all -- by Richmond Fire Paramedics. 2 fire trucks, one paramedic vehicle and 4 RPD attended the scene. Richmond PD is conducting an investigation. The ambient light was good, the road was dry and there was a fair amount of commuter vehicular traffic in the vicinity of the accident. Many motorists and two fellow cyclists (myself among them) stopped to render aid. Only one driver witnessed the accident (though other motorists and cyclists were on the scene in mere seconds) and he stayed to give his statement to RPD.

Richmond Greenway and the Ohlone Greenway will soon be connected!

Richmond Greenway and the Ohlone Greenway will soon be connected!

Your Safe Routes to Transit program is funding design work for the Richmond/Ohlone Greenway gap closure project, a relatively short project that connects long stretches of greenway on either side. Powerpoint presentation is online at: www.ci.richmond.ca.us/index.aspx?nid=1118

To bridge the gap between the Richmond and Ohlone Greenways, the proposed design will install a new 16’ wide at-grade crossing of San Pablo Ave at the endpoint of the Ohlone Greenway. It would also re-route and pave the eastern portion of the Richmond Greenway so that it connects with the new crossing of San Pablo Ave. The crossing design will include bulb-outs, a removal of the median, a new traffic signal for a dedicated bike/ped crossing, and bike-activated crosswalk sensors.

“This Richmond/Ohlone Greenway project represents a big win for pedestrian and bicycle accessibility. When complete, not only will we have made a dangerous crossing much safer, but we will have a bike/pedestrian destination worth visiting,” states Adam Beerman, a Bicycle Coalition member who bike commutes from Berkeley to Richmond along the Greenway.
