Construction diversion....

 They're doing some construction work on Mill St. in the center turn lane.  No big deal, they have one of the lanes for West bound traffic blocked off.  It isn't apparently quite enough room (an entire lane) and traffic is currently driving in the bike lane.

This is kind of typical for small scale road construction projects in Reno....using the bike lane as a vehicle lane when doing lane closures.  Most people would say eh, no big deal, it's just a lightly used bike lane.

I wonder if they would have the same sentiment if we closed a vehicle lane and used it as the bicycle lane while we did construction?  I'm guessing that they wouldn't be please.

Either way, if Mill St. is on your commute.  Watch out for conflicts with traffic here.

  1. That must have just been in the a.m. I think I saw them setting up but I go in so early it didn't effect me.
