29 | Put a curb cut and crosswalk on it! by keihly moore

Put a curb cut and new crosswalk on it!

Before: No curb cut or crosswalk at the corridor entrance. (It's over about 35' from the entrance to the right in this picture. See second picture below for the existing crosswalk.)

After: Curb cut and colorful crosswalk to make the crossing safer. 

Why does the Southwest Corridor crosswalk and curb cut at Amory Street not align with the entrance? Can we please provide easier access? It's dangerous for cyclists and strollers as designed, because when exiting the trail, the narrow sidewalk does not allow a full perpendicular alignment to the road, so they are unable to easy see if traffic is coming from both directions. I wonder how long it would take to get this fixed? Months? Years? See below for the existing crosswalk. 

Existing: Here's the state of the crosswalk today, about 35' to the right of the existing Southwest Corridor entrance. It needs to be repainted and we need to add another at the entrance! 

24 | Rail Revival in Brooklyn Arts District, Wilmington, NC by keihly moore

By Allen Davis

Put a greenway, pedestrian connection, and revived transit on it!

Before: This abandoned railway corridor in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Wilmington, NC.

This abandoned railway corridor is envisioned as a phased "rails with trails" system (there are 3 phases shown: existing, greenway, and passenger rail). This would connect neighborhoods to a future multimodal transportation center, downtown community college campus and the Cape Fear River. These renderings we used to achieve support for the land to be leased from NCDOT for the greenway, on the condition it not prohibit the use of the corridor for passenger rail service. We hope to be moving from conceptual to detailed design over the next few years and adjusting the land development ordinance to allow greater densities in exchange for fronting directly onto the trail. - Allen Davis

After: Put a pedestrian and bicycle connection on it!

After: Put new transit connections on it!
