Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Cheaper to build, more expensive to maintain is my (uninformed) guess.

Maintenance is certainly more expensive - asphalt has a far shorter lifespan than concrete.

There was an idea floating around on Twitter recently that suggested Seagram would make a great woonerf.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

Right now it is one in effect and it doesn’t work well. Of course it’s not supposed to be one so drivers aren’t expecting pedestrians on the road.

More seriously, I don’t think a pure transportation corridor like Seagram would make sense as a woonerf. I tend to associate woonerfs with destinations, not thoroughfares. I think some of the roads on campus (probably all but Ring Road, actually) would work well as woonerfs, which wouldn’t actually be all that different from how they are already.
