Seeing Vancouver by Bike – The New York Times


When I returned to Vancouver in the late 1980s, biking in the city was different than it is today. In my memory, the only people brave enough to ride downtown were bike couriers. On sunny afternoons there would be a dozen of them lounging and smoking outside the HSBC bank building on West Georgia Street, waiting for their next sortie, looking bored and skeptical, outlaws every one.

Mere civilians, like me, were discovering mountain bikes around this time because you could ride them on trails, which is to say, safely distant from the at-times murderous urban traffic.

All that has changed. Bike couriers fell to technology. Vancouver set out to become a “green city,” and we now have a network of protected bike lanes throughout the downtown core as a result. Commuting to work, or even just casually biking about, is now no longer a life-and-limb undertaking.

Meanwhile, back in 2015, the city also completed the last extension of the sea wall with separated bike and pedestrian lanes. You can now travel its length, with little elevation change, from the Vancouver Convention Center on the north side of downtown, around Stanley Park, along the north and south banks of False Creek, and finally, all the way west to the vast sandy beaches at Spanish Banks. There, in late spring and early summer — particularly on crowd-free weekdays — bald eagles can be seen wheeling in pairs in the updrafts over the anchored freighters.

I love the sea wall. But then, a lot of us do here. We stroll it. We bike it. We crowd the community squares along its length in any remotely nice weather. Asked how a visitor can really see this place on a short visit, that’s what I’d say: Rent some wheels and hit the sea wall. There’s no better way to take in Vancouver from so many angles while accessing a range of local tastes and experiences as you go. And with bike and e-bike rental shops throughout the downtown core, it couldn’t be easier.

From Canada Place, the cruise-ship port in downtown Vancouver, the most compact version of the sea wall ride would be to ride it all the way around Stanley Park, the 1,000-acre, densely forested public park that extends westward from downtown and is arguably the crown jewel of the city. Weave your way through the buskers and conventioneers near Canada Place and pick up the bike path at the southwest corner of the Vancouver Convention Center. From the north side of the building you’ll get a great view of the working harbor: orange cranes towering over their quilt-work stacks of containers; ferries crossing the inlet to North Vancouver; the low roar of floatplanes taking off and heading west through the uprights of the Lions Gate Bridge.

It’s only a few minutes ride from here to the park, winding around the Coal Harbour Marina with its enormous yachts, then the Westin Bayshore. Expect foot and bike traffic. But past the red-and-white lighthouse at Brockton Point the traffic thins out. I find it serene gliding along this stretch, Stanley Park’s forest rising high on one side and those towering mountains right there across the inlet.

Once around the corner under the Lions Gate, car traffic booming high overhead, stop to take in the seabirds, fishermen throwing lines off the rocks, sailboats tacking and reaching their way among the anchored freighters.

At a leisurely pace, which I encourage, it takes about 40 minutes to reach English Bay from where you started at Canada Place. I always hop off the sea wall here to dive into the dense vibrancy of Vancouver’s West End. Like many others, I used to rent down here. And if you stop for a drink at the Sylvia Hotel bar, or head up Denman Street for coffee at Delany’s, or for five pork dumplings in beef broth at Legendary Noodle, you might just think of yourself as an honorary West Ender as well.

To complete this short ride, leave the sea wall now and continue north on Denman Street. You could walk your bike for this stretch as the street life is its own entertainment. When you reach the water at the north end of Denman you’ll rejoin the sea wall and can then follow it back to Canada Place.

For a longer ride, about 90 minutes round trip, remain on the sea wall and carry on past English Bay, under the Art Deco-style Burrard Street Bridge, and into False Creek. Here you will find a very different set of Vancouver scenes and moments.

Home to sawmills and lumber yards as recently as my own childhood, False Creek is now a residential zone with waterside condos, shops, restaurants, parks and more big yachts in the marinas along the north side of the creek. I always stop to look at the smaller boats anchored for free: liveaboards, which, combined with those bathtub ferries taking people back and forth for shopping on Granville Island, give False Creek a pleasingly lived-in feel.

I turn this into a picnic when I’m down here with friends and family. There are excellent restaurants blocks off the water in the chic converted warehouse district of Yaletown. But 15 minutes past English Bay as far as the foot of Davie Street, you can pick up a more casual lunch of pancetta and onion pizza at the Sciué Italian Bakery or a bento box from the upscale grocer Urban Fare. Eat on the benches that line the water or in David Lam Park, where you can listen to kids in the playgrounds, and watch the bridal parties taking photographs under the cherry blossoms.

Only 10 minutes farther on the sea wall, around the end of False Creek, past the geodesic dome of Science World, you’ll find the public square in Olympic Village. You’ll know you’re there when you see “The Birds” sculpture: two house sparrows just under 20 feet tall. If you’ve waited for lunch, this is prime food truck territory, but a peach and rosemary tart and a coffee from Terra Breads cafe has never failed to hit the mark either. After lunch, wander down to the water, lean on the railing and watch the dragon boats, 20 paddlers each, churning the water to a white wake.

Following the signs for the sea wall bike route, you’ll soon roll into Granville Island. It’s a big attraction, so expect crowds. But it’s a local place, too. When I lived closer, I shopped at the public market here almost every day. Even now I’ll stop to say hello to the folks at Tenderland Meats, or watch the fishmongers breaking down salmon. You can also wander down the island’s lanes to see glassblowers at work. Popina at the tip of the pier is your spot for everything from falafels to Nashville hot chicken, lobster rolls to crispy cod sandwiches. To complete this 90-minute ride, take the bike-friendly Aquabus on the far side of the market and it will be under 15 minutes back to Canada Place via protected bike routes.

You’ll have seen a lot of the city by now. But as a local, I would consider one stop still outstanding. This is the longest version of the sea wall ride and would take a little over two hours in total from Canada Place to Spanish Banks and back. Continue west from Granville Island, around Vanier Park, past the Vancouver Maritime Museum. Pause to look at the heritage boats moored at Elsje Point. I like the red-sailed Anja in particular, a Bristol Bay Cutter, the ancestor design of modern racing yachts. Continue past Kitsilano Beach park, down West Point Grey Road, and around the corner at the Jericho Sailing Center, where kids learn the ropes on their 420s and Lasers. Here Spanish Banks opens up ahead: a wide stripe of grassy shore and sandy beach that scallops its way westward.

On summer weekends the area buzzes with family barbecues, volleyball games on the sand. But for me, the day of the week matters much less than the tides. I time my visit to Spanish Banks for the lowest low, when the sea pulls back dramatically, exposing hundreds of meters of sand along a two-kilometer stretch of beach.

You’ll want beach shoes. There are tidal pools. With your bike locked up, head out onto the sand flats. The dogs will chase Frisbees up and down. The gulls will scream and dive. The eagles will circle and soar. And if you walk out close to the lip of the sands, the freighters will seem almost close enough to touch.

I’ll invariably turn and face the city at this point. I’ll note the dense green shoulder of Stanley Park, the West End towers rising and bristling, the crystal glass constellation of downtown and False Creek towers, all seemingly silent and still from this distance, a seam of life pinned in place between the dome of eggshell sky above, the steel blue ocean below.

Here is the city’s best angle, I submit. Vancouver in a single macro-glimpse. Well worth the journey for a newcomer. Even for this lifer, an eye-opener every time.

Best and Worst Times to Travel – NBC Boston


Memorial Day Weekend is expected to be both busy and expensive this year with inflation driving up travel costs.

It’s not great timing for the unofficial start of summer, which kicks off this coming weekend. Nearly 40 million people are expected to travel ahead of the long weekend, which is up 4% from last year. Add that on top of the skyrocketing prices for gas, airfare car rentals, and you have yourself a pretty big headache.

Average domestic flight prices are up 46% from 2019. Some flights are already sold out for weeks and, unfortunately, things are not much better on the ground.

It’s hard not to notice the skyrocketing cost of fuel with people thinking about driving during the upcoming summer vacation — or even driving to the corner store. A gallon of regular gas in Massachusetts is now $4.47, according to AAA — up 17 cents from last week. A year ago, it was $2.89.

Gas prices are expected to average close to $4.65 by next weekend, which is a 51% increase over last year. So how do you make the best of it and try to avoid all the stress if you’re driving? The worst roads in the region area to travel are the Expressway south and Purchase Street from Route 24, according to AAA.

The times that you want to avoid driving are Thursday and Friday between 1 p.m. and 8 p.m. The best time to drive is early in the morning before 7 a.m. or after 9 p.m. on Thursday and Friday.

For those who are heading home Monday, the best time to drive is after 11 a.m. because the traffic will be worse in the afternoon. For those who are flying, experts suggest booking midweek and early morning flights as well.

New study looks at ways to reduce traffic congestion, travel times in Northwest Arkansas


Make your voice heard

Planners are working to update the region’s traffic congestion management plan. The draft 2022 Congestion Management Process is open for public comment through Friday . Here’s a link to the draft: https://www.nwarpc.org/transportation/congestion-management-process/ .

Written comments can be sent to [email protected]

The Technical Advisory Committee of the Northwest Arkansas Regional Planning Commission will consider the draft Thursday .

The group’s Policy Committee will consider approval of the draft May 25.

Nobody likes sitting in traffic losing time and money, including regional planners who are studying ways to ease congestion on the region’s major roadways.

“The study basically analyzes where this congestion is occurring in the region,” said Tim Conklin, assistant director of the Northwest Arkansas Regional Planning Commission. “Overall, we still have a lot of work to do in Northwest Arkansas as we continue to forecast significant growth in population over the next 25 years.”

Population projections for the region predict about a million people living here by 2045.

“We’re really blessed having our population grow over 100,000 people per decade over the last 30 years, but with that comes increased travel demand on our roadways and interstate,” he said. “If we were not growing, and the population was declining, and there were fewer people and fewer cars here, it’d be getting better.”

Traffic congestion, or gridlock, can cause more than just travel delays making a person late for work or school in the morning and late getting home in the evening. Other problems range from economic losses such as lost time and delays delivering goods to quality of life concerns and even safety.

Gridlock makes it harder to estimate how long it’s going to take to reach a destination, results in more fuel being burned, contributes to road rage and slows emergency response times. Sitting in traffic also eats into leisure time and time to do other tasks.

“When a region addresses traffic congestion well, it reduces commuting times and it cuts the cost of transporting goods. It strengthens the region’s business environment,” said Nelson Peacock, president and CEO of the Northwest Arkansas Council. “Northwest Arkansas must add highways, expand public transit and embrace transportation technology to effectively manage traffic congestion and remain one of the nation’s best places.”

Congestion management plans are required for areas with populations of more than 200,000, according to the Federal Highway Administration. The plan for Northwest Arkansas was last updated in 2015. The administration defines congestion as an excess of vehicles on a road at a particular time resulting in speeds that are slower — sometimes much slower — than normal or free flow speeds.

Out of the 826 miles of road network in the region analyzed in 2019, about 71 miles were identified as congested.

“This year we’re updating it, the analysis year however is 2019, due to the pandemic and the impact on people commuting within our region,” Conklin said. “So, we have a snapshot in time of 2015 and 2019, and it helps us identify corridors in the region that are the most congested and the region should really focus on.”

The region’s 2015 congestion management plan identified about 228 miles of congested corridors in the region. A corridor is a generally linear area containing one or more modes of transportation. Many of those have since been addressed with transportation improvement projects, many in cooperation with the Arkansas Department of Transportation.

Improvements to the Arkansas 265 corridor and widening of Interstate 49 and improvement to its interchanges are examples. Those roads are no longer identified as congested corridors in the new study, Conklin said.

Conklin said there are plans for more than $1.5 billion in regional transportation projects over the next 20 years to address growth and the four cities with voter-approved bond projects have over $500 million in work of their own.

“We have studies of the major corridors that have identified projects. It’s just going to take additional resources and planning to address our needs in Northwest Arkansas,” Conklin said.

The proposed Arkansas 1112 widening and improvements and the 612 Bypass project that is currently being planned and will be constructed over the next five or 10 years are a couple of examples, Conklin said. Another example is Arkansas 265, where the ultimate build-out is for a four lane facility through Rogers.

“We’ll update it again in a few years. There’s a lot of discussion about are people going to go back to the workplace and what is the new normal,” Conklin said. “I think post-covid, we’ll see how this all settles out and see how that impacts the transportation system. It’s been interesting to see that impact on the transportation system the last couple of years.”

Growth in Benton County is significantly impacting the transportation system around Bentonville and Rogers, particularly U.S. 62 and Arkansas 102 and Walton Boulevard, north and south.

In Washington County, significant congestion occurs on U.S. 412 in Springdale and on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and the Wedington Drive/I-49 interchange area in Fayetteville.

Research has shown congestion is typically the result of six root causes often interacting with one another: limited physical capacity, poor traffic signal timing, traffic incidents, work zones, bad weather and special events.

Congestion management identifies areas congested, along with the causes, and then develops and implements solutions. The process includes measuring transportation system performance and reliability and evaluating how effective solutions have been.

An example would be syncing traffic signals across the region. Other strategies could include managing access to highways, adding traffic signals and adding capacity by widening roadways or building roads.

Defining and addressing congestion

Congested corridors are identified by the Federal Highway Administration as those roads which experience the worst (top 15%) congestion during any of four peak periods, including morning and evening rush hours, afternoons and weekends.

“For this study we used a two hour a.m. and p.m. window versus four and the reason for that is obviously in some of the bigger metro areas you have a longer duration of congested conditions,” Conklin said. “In Northwest Arkansas, you’re typically not having four hour periods of congestion.”

Several road projects which could address the congested corridors are identified in the study.

The congestion management process will also draw from a number of existing plans and studies, including the Regional Transportation Plan, Transit Development Plan and the Northwest Arkansas Bike-Ped Plan.

“As we continue to grow, we’ll improve our two-lane roads that have no sidewalks and open ditches and narrow lanes and curves with more of a complete street cross section that accommodates all users and modes of transportation,” Conklin said.

Complete streets are roads designed to include sidewalks, bike lanes and public transit accommodations.

In addition to streets and highways, planners will look at land-use planning, such as more mixed-use development, infill and greater density and plans to limit sprawl. They’ll also look at adding safety measures and including facilities such as bike lanes and dedicated paths to get people moving on bicycles and walking more. Expanded public transit service across the region will also figure significantly in the plan, such as bus rapid transit systems and routes connecting various cities.

Two other plans are in the works to complement the congestion management process by using technology to manage traffic, according to Elizabeth Bowen, a senior planner at Regional Planning. The idea is to modernize traffic signals to improve traffic flow using electronic monitoring and automation to provide real-time traffic and transit management.

Advanced traveler information systems could also be used to provide an extensive amount of data to travelers, such as real-time speed estimates on the web or over wireless devices, and transit vehicle schedule progress.

Traffic control systems, often housed within a traffic management center, could monitor the volume and flow of traffic using a system of sensors and cameras and analyze traffic conditions to spot developing problems. Then the system would make adjustments to traffic signal timing in order to optimize traffic flow.

Equipment could also change posted traffic speed limits approaching areas of congestion, bottlenecks, traffic incidents and other conditions that affect traffic flow.

The cost of sitting in traffic

Nationally, traffic congestion in the U.S. cost drivers more than $53 billion in 2021, a 41% increase from 2020, according to the Inrix 2021 Global Traffic Scorecard, released in December. Inrix specializes in global transportation analytics.

The average American driver lost 36 hours due to congestion-related delays, costing $564 in wasted time. That was a 10 hour increase from 2020, but 63 hours below prepandemic levels.

With many people stuck at home, driving fell significantly, dropping 40% in April 2020, according to Inrix.

Economic costs were calculated based on a report by the Federal Highway Administration which calculated a driver’s time is worth $15.60 an hour, according to an Inrix news release. Inrix calculates time loss as the difference between driving during commute hours versus driving at night with little traffic.

“Covid-19’s impact on transportation has continued through 2021, transforming when, where and how people move. Although congestion climbed 28% this year, Americans still saved 63 hours compared to normal,” said Bob Pishue, transportation analyst at Inrix. “The most notable change to commuting during the pandemic — other than reduced travel times and volumes — was the lack of downtown travel.”

A 2012 study commissioned by the Northwest Arkansas Council found sitting in traffic was costing Northwest Arkansas residents more than $103 million a year in wasted time and gas. Since that study was done, some improvements have been made to address congestion, but more cars have also been added to the mix because of the region’s population growth. The study hasn’t been updated.

Eliminating traffic congestion may not be possible, particularly in fast growing regions, the congestion management study concludes. Moreover, eliminating congestion may not actually be desired if it comes at the expense of economic vitality, community livability, or bicycle/pedestrian access. Therefore, it’s important to define what is considered “unacceptable congestion” and set appropriate objectives for congestion management that supports regional goals.

2 major road projects on I-285 could make your travel times longer – WSB-TV Channel 2


2 major road projects on I-285 could make your travel times longer If you’re planning on using I-285 over the next few days, you may want to prepare yourself for travel times to increase.

NORTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — If you’re planning on using I-285 over the next few days, you may want to prepare yourself for travel times to increase.

Two big road projects on sections of I-285 westbound in north Fulton County.

“Hopefully, eventually, it will decrease the amount of traffic when they finish this construction,” driver Aidan Schettino told Channel 2′s Christian Jennings.

The Georgia Department of Transportation has shut down the I-285 westbound offramp to Roswell Road. It will not reopen until 5 a.m. on Monday morning. The eastbound ramp is still open.

“You still have to get to point A, point B. The side roads will be bad too, Roswell and Abernathy, but I guess we will have to deal with it,” business owner Chris Deetanna said.

TRENDING STORIES:

Also on I-285 westbound, big changes are in store for the Peachtree-Dunwoody Rd. exit, which means more delays there too.

“Peachtree-Dunwoody Road will shut down for the weekend. That’s all in anticipation in preparation for a brand new exit point,” Kyle Collins with the Georgia Department of Transportation told Jennings.

Collins added that starting Sunday, there will be a new exit location at Peachtree-Dunwoody Rd.

“As a driver, you’re going to have to think ahead. I know we’re always asking you to do that and be alert and think ahead, but you’re actually going to have to exit once this is finalized,” he said.
