The Rose Quarter is supposed to be an efficient transit hub—instead, it's a bottleneck that's dangerous for bikes, pedestrians, and causes freeway crashes.

I wrote about what's wrong with the Rose Quarter in last week's paper, but just wanted to give a heads up that the design meeting about how the city and state should fix the Rose Quarter's spaghetti streets is tonight! It'll run 5-8:30 pm at the Oregon Department of Transportation (123 NW Flanders), stop by during that time to check out plans for the area and offer ideas.

In other news of transportation things that are a bad idea, a man was arrested this weekend in Portland for going 139 MPH, drunk on his motorcycle. I didn't even know that was possible.
