A Viewer Writes....Mayor's Bike Lane Causes Confusion & Back Ups by PRMC

Picture taken at 2:45 pm Tuesday, 8/6/2019.  - These cars just missed the green light onto Carroll Street and immediately created this back-up on Waverly Drive for the Mayor's Bike Lane.  Each direction on Waverly Drive is now and forever a single lane.   This back-up/bike lane will easily block the entrance into the Emergency Room at PRMC and imagine what the back up will be at 5PM or when schools let out.


Posted 8/5/19  on Facebook by a PRMC physician:

Does the City of Salisbury plan on distributing a printed list of instructions detailing what to do if one finds himself in the unfortunate circumstance of traveling north on Waverly Drive? That paint job appears to be a drug-induced collaboration between Rube Goldberg and Pablo Picasso. If anyone finds me stopped in the middle of the street sobbing on my steering wheel, please help me out of the car and escort me safely to the curb.

Be careful what you ask for; you may be inviting vehicular euthanasia...; )

I saw someone weaving through cones last week.

It’s just stupid!

As a cyclist, I understand and appreciate what they were TRYING to do. It just seems like the execution is lacking. Maybe there's more paint to come which will clarify it all.

I agree but what I can’t understand is that cars have an inside leasing lane now... and we know that’s outside of being intelligent

I thought the same thing! Crazy

Jacob Day gave a full explanation on someone else's wall.  All will work out. Stay safe

I guess one has to be a Facebook friend of that person to see what's on his wall. I guess I'll just have to be patient and not kill any pedestrians in the meantime.

I was JUST talking about that crazy paint job! What in the world!?!?

Love Jacob Day.. but the execution of good thinking wasn’t carried out.


Jacob Day responds:   Wrong. Politicians don’t engineer streets. And the engineers did a fine job following the law. The construction isn’t complete.

I know that! It wasn’t an attack at all... u know me better than that!! I would do a public thing with that... I just think it’s crazy

Sounds like we need more patience, grasshopper.

I have none.


Jacob Day responds:   oh ok I got tagged so it seemed directed at me. I know we’re cool! My point is it isn’t a crazy or confusing design, it’s just not complete. That said, when complete, it will be a design that forces cars to slow down.


Separate argument ... crazy that we need to tell people to slow down.... in a residential area..... these people are stupid

it is a shame. But I will say this, while people should take responsibility for their speed, when a street is safe to move down at 25 mph but is designed to signal to drivers that it should be maneuvered at 50 mph, whose fault is it when they drive 50 mph? We can design streets to be safer. Yes, it will slow us down and people will be aggravated... but it will save lives.

It’s not complete. This is stage 1.


Jacob Day responds:  It’s in the middle of construction. When the contractor is done it will be crystal clear: it’s a standard 2-lane street, removing the old weaving pattern and compliant with the new State Vision Zero Law. The bike lanes (temporarily stripe-separated) will he separated with physical barriers.







Mayor Day, thanks for coming on here and putting us all at ease! What's the timeline for completion?


Jacob Day responds:  I’m not, sure since the contractors are not bound to complete projects within days. That said, our team will step in tomorrow if they aren’t done and will drop more cones in the interim until complete. The work that remains, I believe, includes all of the thermoplastic lane indicators, the final striping near Carroll, the vertical signage, the zebra barriers that go on top of the diagonal striping to keep cars out of the bike lanes and the vertical barriers to keep cars from turning into the bike lanes accidentally. I’ll share examples of those images in a second.







Jacob Day responds:  And the zebra/zicla barriers are intended to be temporary here as the striped area will eventually be replaced with curbed, planted medians.


I use Waverly multiple times a day, but since this started I am using Rt. 13 more. Seems it will work when finished, but right now I feel every one is confused and I am taking an alternate route.


Yup. I kept swerving back and forth between the “sections” bc I couldn’t figure out where I was supposed to be. I know the people behind me had to think I was drunk.



I slowed down to 10 MPH.. Not sure if this was the best thing to do!

They tore up the southbound side of 13 (look at what used to be sidewalks) Why??? When are they going to fix it??

Now look at the northbound lane (tearing it up now). How about you fix the one side before you destroy the other.

Throw bike lanes on Waverly (alternate to get around the cluster that is going on on rt 13) just in time to snarl traffic worse. WTF!!!

The state does not control CITY streets. This is ALL on the city. They chose to do it and they chose to take the money to fund it with strings attached.

Anonymous said...

To point out a truth, no Salisbury administration has even attempted to slow traffic on Waverly. In fact, the only thing that's been done over the years is to widen it several times, which only encouraged people to drive 40-50 mph past the residential district instead of the posted 35. We've lived in the district for over 25 years and have wondered why there's no speed control of any kind at a place where there are lots of residential cross streets, pedestrians and bicyclists.

Anonymous said...

it seems ALL OF THE CONSTRUCTION SBY does is NEVER COMPLETE... Think about that, and think on this, it took 3 god damn years to put in sidewalk on one side of 13 south from vinnies to the shopping center beside it... Downtown still is not finished and they rather work on that stupid light change to a stop sign bullshit with their rainbow crosswalks...

Anonymous said...

Dear Morons,

Bicycle lanes are not needed and are a huge waist of time and money. Did any of you take driver's education? Did you take a safe cycling class. I took both. Let me educate you:

Bicyclists must follow the same rules of the road as a motor vehicle operator.
Bicyclists, who are following those rules of the road, have right of way and motor vehicle operators must yield, as to a pedestrian.
Wear a helmet and ride your bicycle the way you are supposed to and all these ridiculous bicycle lanes can go away.

Anonymous said...

Clearly Gay Day and the engineer's who designed this ore more stupid than dirt... It is clear and factual that the slowing down, breaking and objects in the roadway such as these barriers and all of that is what causes accidents... Someone going 50 MPH is not a problem or a threat, just look at 50 and certain sections of 13, people go way to fast, over the speed limit and there are no problems... You people need to understand traffic patterns and traffic research that was done for years for things like this... They have a manual to called MUTC check it out...

Roads are paid for by motorists. All other forms of travel are leeches since they don't contribute. Joke is out of control trying to turn the 'bury into his vision of Amsterdam.

We are spending a fortune on labor, paint, signage and other sundries to make half of the roadway unusable by cars, trucks and buses. There just is no, none, zilch, zero usage by bicycles on these set-asides.

Since the revamping of Mt. Hermon Rd. in front of Dove Pointe a few years back I have seen exactly three (3) bikers in all of my travels in the 'bury.

I'm not anti-bike and still own several going back several decades. That said, this top-down approach is financially wasteful and unsafe. Bikers do not follow traffic signals and patterns if it is inconvenient and this puts motorists at risk, and the biker in jeopardy.

Voters in the 'bury - you have the power to rein in this dictator.

Keith Laird - it's a great idea just like putting a bike lane on route 50b. I have yet to see a bike there and I travel that road every day. Wasteful spending

City of Salisbury, Maryland - Keith Laird State Highway bike lanes are something the city has no control over, but as can be seen in our master plans is something we neither supported nor requested. We agree that bikes on highways is a bad idea.

--------------------

Jake Day is being deceitful in this comment as well. They do have control over state highways. Who investigates accidents on issues speeding citations on Rt. 50 and Rt. 13 in the City Limits?? Salisbury does.

Who encouraged the State to put in the bike lanes on Rt. 13 and Rt. 50 in the City Limits?? Jake Day did so this FB post by Jake Day proves he is a lying sack of Sh!t!! Vote him out of office.

This is actually quite funny. If you go on google maps a bike lane was already indicated on waverly as far back as 2015.

It was painted on the street. Why was this not sufficient and we needed to alter it even more?

Is it because Jake took all the money out of he roads department for his 20 hr folked festival and the only way he was going to get any road work done was to put on this charade to make it look like he was actually doing something and grabbed the money from the state?

So he is re-bike lane-ing a road that was already bike-laned?

I can hear Muir Boda whining about how much Jake has done for the city and the only thing he can regurgitate is this ridiculous bike lane crap...

So you idiots paid twice to bike lane an already designated road. Not winning.

My question for the mayor is: HAVE YOU LOST YOUR FRIGGING MIND?

I rode past this yesterday evening and didn't see one bicycle in any of the lanes! It's a mess and will definitely cause traffic congestion for the few bikes that use this lane. Another case of the 1% taking away and inconveniencing the rights of others and the tax pay public!

Telling you, you can't have a chain link fence. Telling you he is turning your town into a "biking community" whether you agree or not. Selling public owned land for pennies on the dollar to his buddies in private deals (according to your councilman Muir Boda at a recent republican club meeting). Killing wildlife and then denying it. Taking money out of departments to use for other things than what they were intended for? (folked festival). Bankrupting businesses downtown with his chaotic construction. Segregating citizens by trying to tax some more than others, when in fact he admitted one does not use anymore services than another. Hiding higher crime stats?

Has he brought new businesses here?
Has he factually curbed crime?
The 20 hour festival is a money pit and total failure, be happy you only have 1 more year of it but how many years is it going to take to pay off? Don't know? Why because he is hiding the figures? Wonder why.

Your uneducated comments are ... unbelievable. Some chick is on there whining because he used a stock photo. Thats her concern. Not his platform, doesn't even bother to go to the meet and greet to see what he is all about, she is whining about the stock family picture he used.

Then you have the progressive caucus trolling him with their ignorance and bliss. These are the people who are also running for political office. Acting like 8 year olds, on the competitions fb page, insulting their constituents while accusing him of doing the same. Ironic isn't it.

Toilet bowl politics. Welcome to Smallsbury. It will never change. Enjoy your useless bike lanes. The joke is on you, taxpayer. This is what your mayor points to, as his legacy. Bike lanes.

Part I
While listening to my fire radio and hearing Station 16 EMS being alerted for the 3rd time for a "Syncopal Episode" at the corner of Baptist Street and Church Street. They finally got out a 3:59 am.

Then Stations 2, 16, 1, and 5(Salisbury and Hebron Fire Departments) got dispatched for a house fire at 617 Truitt street at 3:59 am.

PM 2 on location with a working fire almost instantly.

Why TF do the Salisbury paid firemen sleep through ambulance calls, but jump up almost instantly for a reported house fire.

Truck 1 arrived on location with fire showing and "established command until the arrival of the assistant chief." How did they beat Station 2 there? Why is there an officer riding the Truck if they aren't allowed to do their job as a "Commanding Officer."

Assistant Chief 1 (Records) arrived on location with fire showing at 4:05 am. How the Hell did it take him 5 minutes to get there?? He sounded groggy as Hell. Is he on drugs or still sleeping?

Deputy Chief 16 on location at 4:07 am. Why is he always the last one on location? Is he afraid that he may have to establish command at which he is too incompetent to do? Why TH did Rick Hoppes and John Tull keep this incompetent clown in the position of Volunteer Deputy Chief?? To pacify the volunteers into thinking they have a chief officer in their ranks.

"Engine 16 are you ready for water?" That's correct at 4:09 am. Why TH is it taking 10 minutes to get water to the engine from the fire hydrant??

Assistant Chief 2 on location at 4:11 am. Where TH did he come from, Princess Anne? WTH took him so long??

Engine 507 on location at 4:12 am. They responded from their homes to the station and then to the fire from Hebron and still got there just after Assistant Chief 2. Got 3 assistant chiefs in their SUV 4x4 chiefs trucks and all 3 of them are standing around doing nothing. WTH are they needed for?? Where is Chief 1, Deputy Chief 1 and Deputy Chief 2? Surely they could use 3 more Assitance on the fire ground?

Salisbury EMS being dispatched for an ambulance call at 4775 Meadowlark Drive for a victim of an assault. No EMS units available at 4:17 am. After the second alert Assistant Chief 1 said to dispatch next due. Station 6 EMS being dispatched now at 4:17 am.

Notice how many times these fire departments are being re-alerted and how many are scratching on their calls dispatched? Do we have a serious volunteer fire department problem in Wicomico County or what? Look at the response times? Look at the number of re-alerts? Look at the number of calls scratched on? Funny how these fire stations that scratched voted to make sure that the Station 13 Volunteers weren't able to respond to their calls to assist them.

There is a fire service problem in Wicomico County!

Letter to the editor.

This Lady, who I think is a big supporter of Jake Day, was at EVO yesterday and had her nice Schwin bike stolen right of the bike rack at EVO.

Bike stolen in broad daylight from EVO Public House tonight. Friends in Salisbury, let me know if you spot this white Schwin commuter/cruiser type bike.

Here it the link to her FB page and her plea for help in finding her bike.

Please share and don't forget folks, "Crime is down in Salisbury," just ask Mare Jake Day!!

Joe, you should make that fire on Truitt Street(6:05 am) a comment worthy of a post. It burnt pretty bad and took 2 hours to bring under control with firemen from 10 fire companies.

I just want to know why is it there is a sudden love of bicyclists around here? It wasn't needed before and everything was fine. Now it is all screwed up around here. Plus a lot of those bicyclists think they own the roads. They will not move for anyone. They are not allowed to hinder the flow of traffic. Maryland State law says so.

Anonymous said...

@ August 7, 2019 at 11:22 AM. State law says that bicyclists must stay as far right of center as possible so as not to hinder the flow of traffic. How many different laws should motor vehicles have to follow when driving? It's one thing outside of city limits and another thing when you get in city limits. That's just asking for accidents. Such ignorance.

I would like to know why the City can spend its money on something as dumb as this extravagant bike lane yet Fitzwater street needs repaving and a solution to the constant flooding. One day there will be a sink hole and I pray no one is hurt.

I have never once seen a bicycle in a bike lane in Salisbury! Honestly, it's a nice idea but it's dangerous. How does a car make a right hand turn across a bike lane if someone is riding in it? It terrifies me. In my opinion, whatever is happening on Waverly Drive is absurd! It's confusing and the total loss of a car lane makes no sense. I think there are much better and safer things to do with the city's money.

You haven't seen anything yet, wait till you see what Jake Gay Day has up his sleeve for Eastern Shore Drive. It's going to be much worse than Waverly Drive.

You can thank Manure Bota and Jack Heath for rubber-stamping everything the Homo's plans.
