DBW group sent this out. Looking for cyclist representation tomorrow night as the city discusses potential changes to this intersection that will negatively impact us.

The Borough of Doylestown wants us to know about a proposed change to the intersection of Rt. 313 and Old Easton Rd. being pursued by the Bucks County Planning Commission and PennDOT. The overall plan is to improve North Main St., improve traffic congestion, and develop commerce and industry. Many of us attended a meeting about this issue hosted by the Borough of Doylestown some months ago.

Far be it from me to oppose commercial, industrial and traffic improvements. However, this particular plan has some concerns associated with it one of which effects the cycling community directly: The proposed plan does not allow cyclists or pedestrians to lawfully cross the intersection. Many of us use that intersection to access the areas north of Doylestown.

If you are interested in learning more, or representing the concerns of cyclists and pedestrians there is a meeting at Buckingham Township on Tuesday July 17, 2018 at 7:30 PM. Thanks in advance for your consideration. I have attached a rendering of the proposed intersection.
