thank you for gathering all the task force comments and doing a great job steering this process.
One comment that was made by several members does not seem to have made it into the report and could be added either on page iv or page 7:
The new pedestrian bridge is a separate entity and will not substitute or compensate for the sidewalks and bike lanes on the Longfellow bridge itself.
under the charts is mentioned OUtbound c, but chart does not give such an option.
Visionary- build for the future add with flexibility for a mode shift
add bullet point: Study traffic during construction
In the decades to come the success of this bridge renovation will be judged by the width of the sidewalk ( ie where the crash barrier is located).
