Josh Mrvelj, a transportation engineer with the state said the reduced traffic lanes on the parkway would improve safety for pedestrians and motorists, who often speed on the road and will have to slow down. He described complaints about the loss of a parking lane for two hours a day as “zero-sum thinking.” according to the Business Courier. “I do not think the city is obligated to provide parking for all 24 hours without restriction,” Mrvelj wrote. “Reduced width provides calming for vehicular traffic and is proven again and again to reduce both the frequency and severity of crashes.

And why not, once again it helps some of the most bike dense neighborhoods, neighborhoods that he politicized in his downtown vs. the city campaign.
But we all knew deep down anyhow that every time Captain Clueless talked about bike infrastructure it was the old bait and switch, distract and divide proponents of anything not having to do with streets and his special interest buddies.
Meanwhile this cool bike show comprising of Cincinnatians who don't ride on the street happened at UC last week.
