It’s an improvement, though two complaints I have are the gap between Park Center Boulevard and the Highway 100 ramp, and the off-street bike facility between Park Center Boulevard and Belt Line. I don’t trust motorists to stop before the crosswalk as they usually go as far forward as they can to see traffic from the left.

Shouldn’t everything be protected/separated bike lanes these days?

This will be with us for 50+ Years. This area is dense & getting denser, next to 2 LRT stations!

Woof. That section between TH 100 ramp and and Beltline is really all over the board. At some points they have a quasi-protected bike lane, at some points they have bikes and pedestrians sharing a 6' sidewalk.

Beltline is OK, but I'd like to see at least a 10' MUP (or 12' if back-of-curb) to provide a substantial "spur" from the regional trail into the business district in SLP.

Also would prefer wider circulating areas and separate crosswalk/crossbike on roundabouts, like the new Richfield ones. I'm not sure the separation of modes is hyper-important, but having some elbow room helps.

Yeah, I agree with all of that.
