eagle rock boulevard + colorado boulevard (II)



Here's another view of last week's Eagle Rock reader request. What strikes me about the "before" picture is the amount of effort + regulation such large intersections require — just look at all those dotted turn guides painted on the asphalt! Makes sense, though: the bigger the intersection, the less drivers are able to clue in on their surroundings, and the more guidance they'll need. It's all so formal + rigid, isn't it? A smaller Eagle Rock Blvd. would be far more spontaenous. Infill it with shops + commerce — there's plenty of room — and you'd have even more diversions to explore. See it narrowed!
