  • Bloomfield Bridge over Bigelow Blvd., Polish Hill


I can think of one where a runnel might prove difficult. In West View, going up from the corner of West View Park Drive at Perry Highway. The steps have a dogleg turn halfway up. I’m not sure how well a runnel would work in that situation.

Any others like that? Is there any good design that accommodates that?


The Gallatin St. steps has many landings with switchbacks. It the following video, I carry my bike down the Gallatin St. steps.
