I was actually admiring the road, sidewalk, bike lanes, bollards and other street furniture. These are looking good!

Yes! The crosswalk and pedestrian island at Blanshard and Belleville is an especially good improvement.

Future bike lane extension through the grounds of St. Ann's Academy?

Probably. Carving out a chunk of the St. Ann's Academy property for through traffic was part of the vision for reconfigured traffic flows down there even back in the 1960s. We have no end of examples to demonstrate how today's bright ideas tend to be the same musty old plans from generations earlier, just repackaged.

Give me a choice between arbitrarily eating property for a bike path as versus arbitrarily eating property for a street extension and I'll take the bike path every time, but my point still stands about these never-ending traffic re-configurations. The supposed urgencies and necessities that will be used to justify such re-workings will tend to be very exaggerated if not 100% imaginary. Which is why so much of the work that gets done today will get undone or re-worked tomorrow.

That 1970 plan probably called for a four-lane 40 mph straight shot. Gotta keep those Chryslers moving.
