Designated bike lanes at the Sparks Street Mall?

It could happen, if Larry O’Brien returns to the mayor’s office.

With work on the downtown tunnel set to begin in the next term, O’Brien is promising to make revitalizing the Sparks Street Mall a priority.

“Right now it’s primarily used for people eating lunches on the weekday,” said O’Brien. “It needs something. It needs a little spice and I want to put it on the agenda.”

Mayoral candidate Jim Watson didn’t really criticize the concept, only because the details where too vague.

“For the life of me I can’t figure out what his vision is,” said Watson. “I didn’t see anything new in Mr. O’Brien’s initiative. I certainly didn’t see what the cost of what he’s proposing is going to be. I’m at a loss for words as to what he’s up to.”
