1. 1. A new concrete, decorative barrier will be installed on the Hope Memorial Bridge to separate pedestrians and cyclists on the multi-use path from the vehicular lanes. There are two options consistent with existing materials on the bridge. Which one do you prefer?

 a. Match to the sandstone color of the Transportation Guardian sculptures on the bridge

 b. Match to the color of the existing railing on the bridge

2. 2. On the east and west ends of the bridge, there will be a section of sidewalk that will serve as a safety buffer between cyclists and vehicles. There are two buffer options consistent with the colors and textures planned for the Ontario and Carnegie intersection. Which one do you prefer?

 a. Buffer Option #1: Basalt/Belgian Blue granite cobble pavers (see the "Q2, Option #1" picture below)
 52 (71%) 
 
 b. Buffer Option #2: Concrete pavers with custom color mix of 75% Bagel, 25% Dark (see "Q2, Option #2" picture below)

 I think option #1 will provide a stronger textural change that will be both visually noticible as well as serve as a tactile warning should cars being to veer into those areas...

 I would urge you to keep with one or two decorative paver treatments as too many good quickly look gaudy. Please coordinate carefully with Innerbelt team. Also...in a dark granite, it would be neat to mark the entire trail from the south (Slavic Village) to downtown with a dark granite paver that will last over time.

 You should check with experts from the Cleveland Sight Center if you have not already regarding bold patterns on a walking surface. It may be fine, but it may also throw off a sight-impaired person's ability to discern debris or trip hazards.

 I don't know enough about the pavers and plans for where they will be placed to make an educated recommendation. I would weight my choice with a combination of factors, including - how rough they are to ride on, how slick will they get when wet, how well they drain, and how durable they will be when considering use, weather, plowing, cleaning, etc.

 It would be good to see a section with the different color barriers mocked up. For instance, it is probably nice if all of the barriers are the same sandstone color and it might be strange for automobile traffic to see a barrier on the north side which is sandstone color, and the south side the pink color. It is hard to say without actually seeing it on a drawing. Otherwise, safest to match all color to existing barrier color.

 What is relative effect on bike tires?

 Please find a way to make the bi-directional multi-use path wide enough to stripe it down the middle. Please try to 'light' the Transportation Guardians Please coordinate the multi-use path with the Innerbelt Bridge bike-pedestrian access plans, and connect the path across Ontario to the downtown bike station. Provide wayfinding signs.

 The Grainte cobbles will have a much longer life span than the concrete pavers, however the small size of the granite cobbles will pose an issue with cyclist.

 The light fixture selected is not consistant with the style and design of the bridge. The fixture selected recalls a much earlier time. A fixture that has more of a deco quality should be selected. This much more important than the color of pavement.

 Please place lighting to show the sculptures at night.
