Omaha transportation planners have an idea that would totally transform the look of Harney Street from downtown to midtown.
They are looking at the possibility of giving over a lane on Harney Street to a bike trail. It’s just conceptual, but it’s an idea with traction.
Will this happen? It’s still got a lot of hurdles to jump – funding, to name one – before we know that.
What do you think? Is this a good idea? The model concept in Indianapolis has drawn rave reviews. Commenters on omaha.com are mostly positive, calling it awesome and incredible. At least one person says it’s a horrible idea.
Send in your thoughts. We have quite a discussion going.
