14: Mesa Northbound

Linking to anchors currently broken, so you'll have to scroll to see the medium version of the picture you clicked on.

Mesa Blvd. (Dr.?) just past Steck Ave.

Mesa near 4-way stop with Hyridge
Another of the typical type of street in Austin which gets bike lanes, Mesa Dr. is either a minor arterial or major collector depending on whether or not the neighborhood feels threatened that day (like Shoal Creek); and has bike lanes which predated the policy to prohibit parking before striping lanes. In 1999, these lanes were changed into no-parking zones but enforcement was a huge problem with Anderson High School students preferring to park in front of the school. The problems were eventually resolved (somebody finally got a cop out there a few days in a row) and have generally not recurred since (refuting the arguments of some of the Shoal Creek neighbors). In the northbound direction, I only take Mesa for a short distance to the 4-way stop at Hyridge. These bike lanes are fairly standard width and are in generally good condition.
