Now that Forest Grove Road has had its first bike fatality, it might be worth considering getting the bikes on the bike path and change the road to four lanes.
When I walk from home to TBK, I see very few bikers using the roadway bike lanes and, maybe even less, now that someone has died. Forest Grove Road and Veterans Memorial Parkway are becoming major thoroughfares across the northern Quad-City area. It looks like Forest Grove Road has been designed to become a 4-lane road someday. Maybe it's time before traffic gets worse.
