Phillip Hutchinson replied to Jeremy's discussion Dickens bike greenway
"I'm not totally sure what you're asking, but the stop signs aren't really an issue for installing a two-way bike greenway on an otherwise one-way street. They typically just install smaller stop signs for the contraflow cyclists that…"
