I get the value of complaining here. But if you aren’t also contacting your councilperson and the mayor’s office about this, you’re wasting a valuable opportunity. They can make this stop, and they care a lot about what cyclists want right now.
Sorry, Erin, that’s why I went back and deleted my comment.
I agree we want them plowing the trail, but not using it as a shortcut.
People should call 311 when they see trucks on the trail and also contact their councilperson and mayor’s office to complain. We can get this stopped. We just have to complain enough so somebody finally sighs, picks up the phone, and tells them to.
I encounter a lot of what I’m assuming is construction related traffic, unmarked personal vehicles mostly in the neighborhood of the dirt ramp by the Flyover that goes down to Second that is currently being dug up, they park under the flyover and I followed them outbound towards the Greenfield lot after their shift. There was another vehicle parked near the wood ramp, I’m assuming it belongs to one of the construction workers who have been at the corner of Bates & Second Ave.
An Enterprise box truck was driving slowly outbound on the trail around 640pm. Driven by two guys in high vis gear. I yelled from the sidewalk along second ave, what are you doing, the passenger replied “working”.
