Port Authority of Allegheny County releases NEXTransit plan

The Port Authority of Allegheny County has released their plan to make the Pittsburgh region more accessible, and one idea includes an aerial tram system in the Strip District.The agency’s long-range plan includes 18 projects that they said would improve transit in our area.Rich Wagner of Carrick is a frequent rider of the T.”It’s not too bad from where I park at to here,” he said. “It’s only about a 20 minute ride.”Same for Richard DiBella of Mt. Lebanon. He takes a 20 minute light rail ride into the city, daily.”I think there are a lot of other areas in town that could use the support of either busing or T other than the South Hills where I reside,” he said.That’s exactly what the Port Authority of Allegheny County has been working on over the past two years, and with a lot of public input. It’s called “Next Transit” and is a 25-year plan to improve transit in our area.The most requested infrastructure includes extending the T to the airport and adding a T line from downtown Pittsburgh to Oakland. The plan would also create a downtown transit center, a rapid transit link through the Parkway East and Allegheny Valley South Bank corridor, and bus lanes along McKnight Road in the North Hills.But a high priority on the list of projects, and an attractive one, is an aerial tram system that would connect the Hill District to the Strip District.”I think we should have one there and Mt. Washington, to be honest with you,” said DiBella. “I don’t know why they’ve never had one from Mt. Washington over to the city. It would be fantastic.”The cost for all of these projects is anywhere from $3-4 billion.The Port Authority is holding four public meetings on the plan starting on Wednesday, July 21.To read the details on the 80-page plan: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1T5XL4LbdsCqCWK2EJElLYLun9IprS20q/view

Trio caught on camera ditching a stolen car at a Greene County storage business

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) –

In this week’s Catch a Crook, detectives are looking for two men and a woman seen on security video at Sun West Storage in western Greene County. Investigators say the trio is connected to a car theft out of Joplin.

Surveillance video on October 10, 2020 shows a white Ford F-150 with a “Show Me the Shine” logo printed on the door, and a beige Chevrolet Silverado with a black hood enter the parking lot at the same time. A heavy-set man exits the Ford truck, shortly after a woman with brown hair gets out of the stolen Nissan. She leaves with the man in the Chevy Silverado. The guy in the Ford F-150 then drives into the storage area. They leave the stolen Nissan in a parking space.

Later that evening, a black or dark green Cadillac Escalade truck with large aftermarket wheels pulls into the Sun West Storage parking lot. The same heavy-set man gets out of the passenger side and gets into the stolen Nissan. He drives it into the storage area, where deputies say the property owner found it abandoned. The Cadillac is seen leaving the parking lot shortly after 9:00 p.m.

If you recognize any of the people in the video or the vehicles, call the Greene County Tip Line at 417-829-6230.

Boulder County hosting two bicycle events; reminds motorists to share road

Drivers are being reminded to safely share the road with bicyclists this weekend as Boulder County hosts two separate cycling events.

Saturday’s event, Bike MS, is a fundraising event supporting residents living with multiple sclerosis. In small waves, bicyclists will cross the county, departing from Front Range Community College in Westminster between 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. Participants’ route in Boulder County will follow westbound Colo. 52, northbound North 95th Street, westbound Niwot Road, northbound 73rd and 75th streets, then northbound 83rd Street into Larimer County. Riders will come back through the county along East County Line Road on their return to Westminster.

On Sunday, the Boulder Sunrise Triathlon starts at 7:15 a.m. at the Boulder Reservoir. Cyclists will be off the road by 10:30 a.m. with a sweep vehicle following the last cyclists to keep law enforcement and course marshals informed so that normal traffic in the area can be resumed.

Athletes will leave the park through the main entrance of the Boulder Reservoir, then head south on Jay Road, then veer right onto 28th Street, then again onto North Foothills Highway. .

Motorists are reminded to leave three feet between cyclists and their vehicles. Passing over a double-yellow line to safely pass a cyclist is permitted when oncoming traffic is cleared.

Questions can be emailed to Boulder County Special Events Coordinator John Holste at jholste@bouldercounty.org.

King County considers whether to repeal bicycle helmet law

The King County Board of Health is reviewing the law after concerns it is unfairly enforced and targets people of color.

SEATTLE — The King County Board of Health is looking into whether it should repeal the county’s bicycle helmet law, after concerns it is unfairly enforced and targets people of color.

Central Seattle Greenways, a group advocating for safer streets, started researching the law last year in the wake of nationwide protests over racial inequality.

“We found that Black cyclists have been cited disproportionately for not wearing a helmet at four times the rate of white cyclists, so a really stark disparity,” said Ethan Campbell, who leads the helmet law working group.

Latino and Indigenous cyclists were also cited at higher rates, and Crosscut reported that nearly half of all recent citations went to homeless people.

It is against that backdrop that the King County Board of Health is now reviewing the law.

“If this helmet law is having the unintended effect of actually harming public health through criminalization, that’s something we should take a look at and take very seriously,” Councilmember Girmay Zahilay said during a hearing Thursday.

To be clear, no one involved in the county discussion is saying helmets are bad.

“We strongly support helmet use,” said Campbell, noting the primary concern is enforcement. “We know that helmets reduce your likelihood of being injured in a crash pretty substantially.”

During Thursday’s hearing, council members sounded serious about taking action.

“This one seems to be so egregiously disproportionately applied, I think it does demand our attention,” said Councilmember Joe McDermott, chair of the health board.

A helmet law violation in King County adds up to $104 in fines and court fees, Campbell said.

Tacoma repealed its bike helmet law last year after similar concerns about unfair enforcement.

In place of a helmet law, bike advocates are pushing for increased education, free helmets, and safer streets.

Bicycle theft on the rise in Boulder County

In the time it took to purchase a sandwich from a shop in downtown Boulder, Nancy Trigg’s bike was cut from its lock and stolen.

The Boulder resident ultimately found the bicycle at an alleged chop shop and was able to retrieve it with the help of the Boulder Police Department. It wasn’t registered, Trigg said, but she had photographs of a large dent on the bicycle that helped confirm it was hers. She’s since placed a sticker reading “Please don’t steal my bicycle. Thanks.” over the dent.

While bicycle theft is not a new phenomenon, Trigg noted that something about it feels different.

“What’s different now is it’s blatant,” she said.

Indeed, bicycle theft is on the rise across Boulder County. Both Boulder and Longmont reported an increase in the past year. In Boulder, more than 1,000 bicycles valued at about $1.9 million have been stolen in 2020 from individuals and bicycle shops. In years past, the city reported an average of 700 bikes stolen annually.

Travel east to Longmont, and the story is similar. According to Longmont Police Sgt. Matt Cage, 211 bicycles have been reported stolen this year, an almost 10% increase from the year prior.

“Most property crimes are up all across the state, including Longmont,” Cage wrote in an email.

Although people self-report the value of their bike when it’s stolen, the Boulder Police Department said the average value of each stolen bicycle is more than $1,000. The figures extend through early December.

“Stolen bicycles are a chronic problem here in the city of Boulder,” Boulder Police Strategic Data and Policy Advisor Beth Christenson said in a Dec. 10 town hall meeting.

As such, the department has begun a targeted effort to combat the problem by teaming up with Bike Index, a nonprofit that helps people register their bicycles. The free service helps law enforcement locate and contact people who own a stolen bike that’s found.

“If your bike is stolen and you have registered it and it is found outside the jurisdiction, other agencies can quickly find where the bike is from and who it is registered to,” Christenson said.

Bryan Hance, co-founder of Bike Index, said he helped start the nonprofit organization when he realized that it made sense to have a central place for bike shops and cyclists to go to register bikes and search for stolen ones.

Marketplace in August reported that the disrupted supply chain led to a bicycle shortage. Hance referenced that shortage and other impacts of the coronavirus as some of the reasons for the rise in theft.

“It’s been a really busy year for bike thieves,” he said.

People often send the Boulder Police Department photos and videos of suspected bicycle chop shops, or places where stolen bikes are taken apart so parts can be sold or used on other stolen bikes. However, spokesperson Dionne Waugh said it’s difficult to
