I'd really support a widening of the sidewalks on Aberdeen over bike lanes although having both would be nice. Living in this area I find that Aberdeen is a real barrier between my neighbourhood (Locke / Herkimer) and the one south of Aberdeen (Hillcrest etc).

It's a shame that we are separated by such a huge and dangerous road especially since my son has friends living on both sides and it would be nice to feel safe letting him bike or walk there on his own. Two lanes and wider sidewalks would make the traffic slower, intersections less treacherous and walking on the sidewalk a lot less scary (although Queen takes the cake for that).

There will be bike lanes on Herkimer and Charlton so maybe having wider sidewalks and fewer lanes on Aberdeen will be enough.
