General Road and Highway Discussion
(06-16-2018, 09:14 AM)Pheidippides Wrote: They’d probably have to do two passes with a standard plough anyway; once for the motor vehicle lanes and once for the cycling lane. So the operational costs would be nearly identical. The only difference would be the upfront capital costs of a smaller plough.

They already do 2 passes with the plow, the first pass opens up the traffic lanes, with the wing up, after snow is finished, they do another pass to widen the road to the actual width of the pavement (why do we have such wide pavement anyway?) sometimes when there's no curb with the wing down allowing them to push snow farther off the road.  The bike lanes would be cleared in this second pre-existing pass.
