    What does it actually look like now?

    I'll take some pics of the situation during my lunch break if no one else has any.

    Total fail on my part for forgetting to update this after I got home. I got distracted by my adorable puppies.

    I rode through there around 9:10 this morning, but failed to take pictures. But the signs are just about in the same spots as they were yesterday, with the exception of the detour sign coming off the trail spur. It now points to N Wakefield not at the curb cut...

    Here are yesterday's pictures:

    The lone detour sign for west-bound riders:

    Detour sign for east-bound riders, signs completely blocking the sidewalk. AND, that particular sidewalk ends abruptly with no curb cut to get off it if headed west. A nice 8-inch drop to the ground kind of sucks on a rigid bike with lots of air in the tires.

    Another detour sign for east-bound riders, but it has been moved about 100 feet closer to the trail and away from the curb cut.

    Thank you for posting the pics.

    Just to be clear, is this crudely and quickly drawn map the actual route of the detour according to the signs?

    It looks a lot better than I was imagining, although I understand that it is far from perfect. I'm glad actual signs are there, at least.

    Is there a sign outside the CrossFit (northeast corner of the detour), too? I don't see it in the pics but want to make sure.
