Another Olympic Bike Lane Failure

Cyclists are expressing concern about another bike lane affected by Olympic construction.  Barrier installation has started along Pacific and Expo bike lanes near BC Place in Vancouver.  The barriers include metal brackets which extend over the bike lanes and might create a hazard.  The brackets are pained grey and difficult to see at night.  Initially there was little or no warning for cyclists approaching the structures.  After complaints from cyclists it seems that the visibility of the new barriers has been improved.
