Longer distance crosstown routes – your NolaCycle "take home project"
Many of you know that the first NolaCycle map is just going to the East Bank south of I-610 due to time restrictions with graduation in June and having to have something final to turn in. We’re planning on continuing NolaCycle after June so we can map the whole city, West Bank, New Orleans East, and all. To make up for the lack of comprehensive coverage of these areas on NolaCycle Version 1, I would like to include some recommended crosstown routes on a smaller supplemental map on the backside of the main map (or page 2 if you were to download the map online).
I think the best way to do crosstown routes is for community members to submit some of their preferred routes they take to get to school, work, parks, etc. Since the route map is going to smaller, I would like to only include a handful of really helpful routes for people to use. I’d like to input from people on this idea though – how to rate the routes (easy, difficult, fast, slow, high or low traffic, etc.), where should the routes go, how should people submit routes to me, etc. So this is the fun part where you get to tell me what to do! Comment away my crosstown commuting friends!
