New Thread on the "Bike Boxes" on Forest Avenue at Preble Street Extension
I apparently have a different definition of what is a Bike Box.  I would call any box for a cyclist to use in front of a traffic lane to be a bike box.
I took these photos of the "bike boxes" on Forest Avenue at Preble Street today.  Reviewing the original thread on this bike box shows that they appeared without our committee review in July 2020 in the beginning of the plandemic.  
As you can see that they have not been maintained an just make our city look like a 2nd world country.  We should not be installing infrastructure we know we cannot maintain.  I don't think NEUCO is going to remark what they destroyed and the city would rather just paint new in boxes in new places rather than main the existing ones. 










At least the cars are obeying the stop line at the "bike box".

I don't know what others are seeing, but I'm not seeing your photos come through. Instead, it's a long string of random looking letters and numbers. (Probably the actual bit patterns of the photos rendered as text rather than an image. Maybe a problem with how your email program is attaching them?)
