Here Are Spring Street's New Compromise Green Bike Lanes

New, 18 comments

LADOT finally managed to get some of the Spring Street bike lane operational again for this past weekend's CicLAvia--they had water-blasted the last of the controversial old paint off back on September 15, which Streetsblog complained "left it a shambles." Bikers were quite pleased back in late 2011 when the six-foot-wide lane was first painted in an eye-catchingly bright green, but soon the film industry started grumbling, arguing that the shade was particularly difficult to take out in post-production and was ruining filming Downtown. After ages of back and forth, the city finally agreed to remove 80 to 90 percent of the paint on the one-and-a-half-mile bike lane and to switch out whatever bright green was left for more of a forest. Here's the latest look.
