Bike share station maybe?

@marko, don’t think so, at least based on the station map shown in the bike share website. Of course, they can change their minds and put one there if they want. Wouldn’t be a bad location for one…

I drove by there. I think it’s missing some pieces.

$1.65 million on capital improvements for cycling in 2015. Article is in the Trib, so let suburbanite hate comments begin:

Quotes our mayor, too: “It’s sort of like ripping that Band-Aid off really quick,” Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto said in September about his plans to rapidly install a basic network of protected bike lanes in his first term. “We knew there was going to be this pushback, but we wanted to show [the new protected lane] and let people see it. That type of a reaction starts to dissipate and go down over time. That’s the tradeoff.”

The bollard at entry of the Penn Ave cycle track on 6th street. I suspect this is to facilitate plowing those lanes. It would be ideal if they could re-install the bollard after the snow periods have ended, but I imagine that this will not happen until winter has subsided somewhat.

In the meantime, watch for cars entering the bike lane by “accident”. Ideally, we shouldn’t need a bollard in this situation, but some individuals have problems paying attention to traffic signs. Be safe out there.

I thought no one would use the bike lane in the middle of January?
