It can be addressed with intersection treatments, but being in the road actually protects bicycle users at intersections.
I had included that in my recommendation from Elm to Evans (which is ECU's campus), and of course had the multi-use from The Greenway to Cedar (to Jaycee Park).

The idea would be to have an ECU zone essentially between Elm and Evans that includes Crosswalks, Bike Lanes, and a Median. Traffic would slow coming off the 10th St connector bridge and then could speed up after Elm St. Bikes would run on the Greenway path on 10th St (which is safer). I felt like bike lanes on 10th between Elm and Evans would be safe because traffic would be slowed down with all of the crosswalks and reduced speed limit.

My understanding is that the 10th St connector is supposed to be pedestrian and bike friendly, so Evans is where it needs to continue.

For Evans, and Arlington, I think they need to improve then intersection by adding more turn lanes including the ones that go from South Evans to West Arlington, people will cut through the Village Pawn area. That intersection is also outdated. 14th st is also pretty bad.

Evans can be the next corridor plan the City looks at, and also has a Greenway connection on it. From downtown to Greenville Blvd. The Evans/Old Tar Rd widening will take care of pedestrian/bike issues during its construction from Gville Blvd to Worthington.

Evans St. from Reade to Greenville Blvd. is slated for construction in 2021. Would love for a full corridor plan to be implemented around it.

I thought the widening project from Greenville Blvd to Worthington was in 2021.

Is there something scheduled for Evans between Reade and Gville Blvd? I know the road diet between 10th and Reade on Evans was shelved when the redevelopment downtown started happening.

You're not really making sense about sheetz on Greenville blvd. What do you mean another sheetz is coming there?

I believe he is asking what is going to become of the lot where the BP station was. He wants to know if anyone thinks it might be a Sheetz to open there.

I had not even noticed the BP station was closed to be honest.

When Sheetz opened up around here back a decade or so ago there were rumors they were going to buy that parcel and the one behind it to build. It would probably be a good location for them.
