While I recognize the need to improve the situation on 7th, I believe the proposal is well meaning but will create more problems. There is already significant cut-through traffic on at least NE 8th through NE 10th, with sometimes frightening speeds. Turning NE 7th into a dedicated bikeway will only worsen conditions on these neighborhood streets. The drivers on 7th (and succeeding streets) have already decided not to use MLK and are unlikely to be diverted back to it. They will instead favor less congested streets even deeper in the neighborhood.
