  • Anyone who kept an eye on the monthly reports made to the Metro Board Construction Committee by the Chief Capital Management Officer that are posted on the Metro website already knew everything about Expo’s problems outlined in the Times’ article. Somewhat disappointing as it doesn’t dig into why the delays and overruns have happened.

  • Streetblog San Francisco has reported that a new law makes it explicitly legal to bike on a crosswalk

    “This bill would also permit the operation of bicycles on any sidewalk,
    on any bicycle path within a highway, or along any crosswalk or bicycle
    path crossing.”

    Considering LAPD has ticketed cyclists for doing so, you should pass this along to your readers.
