Is the Pacific Coast Highway Going to Rumble?

The original legislation made no provision for bicyclists at all regarding the installation of rumble strips. We know what rumble strips can do to a shoulder, even a nice wide one. Does the DOT also commit to sweeping the debris from the shoulder? No word.–Corrie

Nothing can quite compare to rumble strips when it comes to ruining a beautiful bicycle ride.  Adventure Cycling and the League have previously written about rumble strips and the difficulties they pose to cyclists.  We were very happy to see the Federal Highway Administration revise their May 2011 guidance that would have promoted rumble strip installation on many rural roads and even some urban roads across America.
