Why the hell did we build the Midtown Greenway if there was no one biking down there before? What a failure by silly hall AGAIN!!!!

Just a thought, curious what y'all think:

Install dynamic signage similar to what's on Marq2 above the middle two lanes that show the no left turn sign during rush hours and events. Make the outer lanes buses and right turns only.

Or if not that, dynamic signage to mark the outer lanes as buses only during certain times. I feel that were at a point where we should really take full advantage of technology to help the street work properly.

Also, this would allow the city to experiment with different options. I keep trying to come up with rigid layouts in my head and just realized that with dynamic signs, the City would be able to customize the street based on the needs of the moment, rather than being stuck with something that's not ideal.
