I was so excited when I saw the following public announcement from the city, thinking this was going to be the public’s chance to remake the Olympics transportation plan, even though it’s already been announced. But when i called to get more information, it was clarified to me that the forum and public consultation will mainly be about the 32 blocks of pedestrian zones in the city not the zillions of Olympics-only traffic lanes and blocked off roads. Oh well, go anyway. Think of it as the city’s first Olympics “live site.”
