Crews put out counting strips Thursday near the intersection of East 18th Avenue and Alder Street. They mark how many people use the reworked section. It’ll then be compared to the numbers before all the work there.
Bikers say the changes have been a nice improvement. They say that route is one of the main ways to get to school. One rider even calls it “the Biker Highway”.
To make sure the counter and numbers are accurate, someone stood at the trail to manually count those on the trail.
