Cooperation Asked for Spring Street Bike Lane Touch Up

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — On Sunday, city crews will take on the task of touching up Spring Street's new, green bike lane, which opened last week to great fanfare despite weekend rains that had left sections of it looking worn and spotty.
That damage was exacerbated by vehicles that cut across the lane before the green paint had time to cure.
For Sunday, the city and the Downtown L.A. Neighborhood Council are asking for cooperation in making sure that a similar fate does not await the redo.
Painting work will take place between 3 and 5am, and the lane will be secured for the entire day to give the new coat time to dry.
"No Stopping" signs will be posted along the length of the lane between Cesar Chavez and 9th. Those who need to access driveways or garages on the west side of the street will need to enter the parking lane at an intersection and use that lane to access their destination. Drivers should merge into traffic at the next intersection.
