New Richardson Trail-Way Master Plan Map

Posted in Bike Trails and Routes, City Stuff by dickdavid on December 21, 2010

We’ve been meaning to post this, but haven’t had a chance. The City of Richardson has posted an updated trail map. This time, instead of just calling it the “Bicycle Route Plan,” they are now calling it the Richardson Bicycle-Pedestrian Trail-Way Master Plan (pdf), which we prefer.

Richardson Bicycle-Pedestrian Trail-Ways Plan

As you can see, there have been many updates and additions, compared to the older City Of Richardson’s Master Bike Route Plan (pdf) – including the new bike lanes in the Duck Creek neighborhood, as well as the proposed and completed lanes on Collins. We’ll keep a link to this map on our Maps page.

I was going east therefore going on the trail in the wrong direction, for my side of the road, of normal traffic. When I crossed Waterview a car also traveling east on Campbell was concentrating on getting a clear shot to turn left and gunned it to cross. At the last moment the driver saw me and slammed on the brakes. I’ll be making a big loop to avoid crossing at that point for now on. Maybe going north on Waterview and making a big u-turn or going west on Tatum. I think a turn only signal would remedy my problem but create a bigger problem for UTD and businesses on Waterview.
