In mid-March I emailed DOMI’s Craig Toocheck about this and lodged a 311 complaint too. At that time I counted about 46 bollards missing in front of Phipps–the entire row (36 of them) from the Schenley bridge to the Phipps entrance crosswalk, and another 10 here and there between the Phipps entrance crosswalk and the crosswalk to the visitors center. More have gone missing since and cars and delivery trucks are repeatedly parking in the bike lanes (I bike it twice a day to and from work).
Does anybody know what’s going on there? My theory is that over the holiday season Phipps removed the bollards–due to the crush of visitors and valet parking–and never put them back. I could be wrong, but I seem to remember that that’s around the time that they started to disappear.
