City reconfiguring bike lanes on 1st Avenue

Crews are restriping 1st Avenue in the Warehouse District this week and changing the location of bike lanes so motorists will once again be able to park next to the curb.

The bike lane will be in the area that used to be the on-street parking area.

The street will be seal coated Thursday and tar and rock chips will be spread on the roadway. There will be no parking allowed on the street through July 19.

The former configuration on 1st Avenue, which had bikers riding between the sidewalk and a line of parked cars, caused a lot of confusion.
