Last year, a DOT project was installed in order to discourage trucks from proceeding through the intersection of 64th Street and Grand Avenue.
It didn't work, and trucks jumped the sidewalk. Mind you, this was to be part of a "Safe Streets to School" program.
What did they do in light of this?
Redid the triangle in order to allow trucks to turn easier.
So they wasted megabucks to do this project twice, when leaving it the way it was originally would actually have been safer. Someone's buddy must have gotten a nice contract.
Not only that, but they had planned to start the Grand Avenue Truck Bypass plan, which would have prevented thru trucks from proceeding down that street under penalty of fine. If that had been put into place, the triangle project would not have been necessary at all.
The plan still hasn't been put into effect. The word on the street is that DOT will release the results of their "study" sometime this fall.
Now if it had been a bike lane...
