Rodriguez says this image "shows the area that will be closed for the 4 years after they paint the overpasses. Â Everything to the left of the red line will be behind a temporary wall (the line goes all the way to Rose street- that is the closed road between the big banks and the small banks) This will pretty much make the actual 'banks' unrideable because as we all know it is very difficult to ride them from such an extreme angle."
According to Rodriguez, this "shows that the upper banks area will be pretty much rideable up until the end of the steel flatbar."
The grayed out area will be used for staging; Rodriquez asked the DOT to make the red area open for skating.
