Save Liberty Road South from future Head-On Collisions by installing Bike-Lanes south of Hilo on Liberty Road South...it is a fatal crash just waiting to happen!

Would the County Commissioners be the ones to approach about this ?

Wayne, I think the County Commissioners would indeed be the ones to approach. That stretch of Liberty must be a county road, being outside the city limits.

I agree: it is dangerous for bicyclists, many of whom understandably like to ride on Liberty. It's a beautiful country ride. Albeit risky, given the lack of a shoulder and the many sharp curves and steep hills.

Thanks for watching the hearing Brian. Maybe you would like to come to the continuation on May 13th and share some of these comments. Anyone who testified on April 22 will be prohibited from testifying again. What do you think about that? As if we were heard the first time.

You might want to go back and listen to the entire thing. Toward the end Peter Berghel offered powerful testimony, also Cara Kaser from the Grant Neighborhood Association

I encourage you and others to go to the No 3rd Bridge Facebook page where you will find a lot of information relevant to this important issue. You don't have to be a Facebook user to look at the page. Just Google it.
