Natalie Orphan started this petition to TAB@bouldercolorado.gov TAB and

In the summer of 2015, Iris Ave. came close to getting protected bike lanes, with a project called "Rightsizing". The proposed changes would have looked much like the small section of Folsom that they completed and kept; reduced traffic lanes, a dedicated turn lane, modified and protected bike lanes. 

The changes would affect Iris from Broadway to Folsom; where the speed limit is 35mph, and is a school zone. The road is so straight and wide that vehicles often travel far above the posted speed limit, and large trucks use this road. Iris Ave. would benefit from these traffic calming measures, and increased separation and visibility for cyclists and pedestrians.

Let's show them that Boulder supports the cyclists, children and families who use this road to get to work, play and school, and that we want them to get where they are going safely and comfortably. City council feared that there was not enough public support for the project - we need to show them that our community supports Rightsizing and wants these changes!
