'Greater Somerville' hosts Joe Lynch and Kyann Anderson.

 

Tuesday night on "Greater Somerville," host Joe Lynch gives equal time to two opponents of the proposed cycle track on Beacon Street.

The $4.5 million dollar Beacon Street reconstruction project now proposes to include a cycle track as part of the upgrade of utilities, ADA compliance upgrades, and roadway and sidewalk reconstruction.  In addition to the loss of on-street parking, the opponents of the cycle track have stated that there are serious design flaws in the Design Consultants Inc. plan, unaddressed public safety concerns not only for cyclists, but for motorists and pedestrians as well.

Tune in at 7:30 p.m. on Channel 3, Somerville Community Access Televison.  No time to watch it live?  Watch this space for the video or go to greatersomerville.wordpress.com for all your "Greater Somerville" episodes.

Below is last week's show, when City of Somerville transporation planners Hayes Morrison and Mark Chase talk about the project.
