Stephan:It is worthwhile to contact your council representative and the mayor about this issue, but it is also important to understand that the city doesn't own the interchanges and can't, on it's own. do anything about them. The freeway interchanges are Caltrans' responsibility.Sigurd:We need to be very specific as to which interchange(s) we want Caltrans/City to review as the first step - even if starting with only one or two for now.Stephan:Well if you want to see changes in one year or less, you should focus on an interchange or two where Caltrans could make a difference with paint and signs, if any exist.In any case, the first step is raising the issue in the public's and elected officials' consciousness. Then get them to do something about it.
Kathy:Are you looking for ones that have a history of crashes, or all the ones that are badly designed? City of San Diego or whole county?
Serge2:You have to merge left earlier there.
Old Knotty Buoy:As the bicyclist continued along, he did a good job of taking the lane (if a little to the side) and just rolling with the flow to follow Nimitz southbound. The white SUV followed behind and the white truck tried to jam themselves into the lane. The driver was all on the horn and just being a major jerk. The bicyclist had to listen to it and wonder what was happing behind him. Very disconcerting to say the least.
Serge2:So while we are working on that, we should also try to do things that will make a significant difference. Like improve cyclist skills and behavior. It is possible to navigate these interchanges safely, even if not everyone is 100% attentive all the time, and it's not difficult to learn.
Petteri: Serge2:You have to merge left earlier there.OK, I bite:
Smorg:Just thought of another one! University Ave going east at Chollas Pkwy, which merges in at high speed from the right. The one spot on University Ave that I really dislike (so I usually take El Cajon Blvd instead when I head east to go up Mt Helix).
Stephan: The City of San Diego Planning Division is doing a master plan for the Chollas Triangle (University, 54th, and Chollas Parkway) that should fix this problem. I couldn't find anything with proposed changes on the city's web site, but the planning effort should be wrapping up relatively soon. Then they just need to identify the money to implement the plan.
