On the night of September 23rd, contractors will begin removal of the current lane striping on Colorado Boulevard. On Tuesday, September 24th, the Department of Transportation (DOT) will begin working behind the contractor to stripe in the bike lanes and add the necessary pavement markings. Most work will be completed at night time, and the installations are scheduled to be done by Friday, October 4th.
Sixty bike racks have already been installed as part of the Colorado Boulevard Safety Improvement Plan, which will include flashing beacons being placed at several crosswalks in Eagle Rock in addition to the two new crosswalks at El Rio Avenue and Glen Iris Avenue.
