Balsam Speedway

balsamstautumnSince the City of Vancouver closed off Point Grey Road, Balsam Street has become a speedway. Drivers cut up the side street, I suppose to avoid the traffic on MacDonald. Cab drivers are among the new speedsters on my formerly quiet residential street. I wonder if there is going to be any traffic pattern analysis now that the “greenway” is complete and has been in use for six months or so. I am also curious if bike traffic and bus trips have increased as the City had hoped they would. Might need to install more traffic circles on a few of the side streets though to calm the newly created traffic.
