Congratulations to Volker Steven on completion of the bicycle path addition on the north Scenic Drive overpass. Unfortunately, this project is a classic example of what the city of Lethbridge wants as opposed to what it needs, again catering to a minority group.
A question needs to be asked, will this path be used year round?
Last week, shortly after construction was completed, I observed the path being impassable. The additions north and south of the bridge were covered with snow. The city plows had directed the snow from the roads to the paths and, as a result, they were not usable. This is no reflection on the plow operators as they have no choice.
Here lies another well-thought-out venture costing taxpayers thousands and thousands of dollars. At the time of writing of this letter, no bike tracks or footprints are visible on the pathway.
What thought process was used in designing this addition? Perhaps the engineering staff should come down from their ivory towers to ground level and see what they are designing. Still better, why do they not try and ride a bike on what they designed?
