When are we getting our corridors?

And some curious Cap Metro ridership trends.

When are we getting our corridors?
My neighbors' massive tree split in half yesterday morning, but miraculously left their home largely unscathed.

What's up with the 2016 bond? Remember Mayor Steve Adler's "Go Big" transportation bond? The $720M price tag made it the most expensive transportation measure in city history, and although it did little to challenge the car-centric status quo, the fact that it included any money for walking, biking or transit prompted a predictable conniption from road warriors.

Anyway, the centerpiece of the bond was the $480 million overhaul of nine corridors: Airport, South Lamar, North Lamar, Burnet Road, Guadalupe, William Cannon, East Riverside, East MLK, and Slaughter. All of the plans differed slightly, but most promised new and improved sidewalks, bike lanes, drainage, repaved roads, new safety-focused design elements (median etc) and new traffic signal technology that would speed up the flow of traffic.

As I reported for the Chronicle way back in 2018, the plan was for all of the corridor projects to be done by the end of 2024, eight years after the bond's passage.

That is clearly no longer the case, although it's hard to know exactly what's going on because the department that oversees construction, Capital Delivery Services, goes to comical (not to mention undemocratic) lengths to avoid providing even the most basic information about its work.
