    There were several tour buses parked in the new bike lanes on Eads this a.m. I didn't stop to take a pic, but if they are there tomorrow I will and forward it on to the proper authorities.

    One car has figured out the bike lane is for bikes.

    No parking signs were posted for tomorrow and Thursday along Eads. Perhaps the stanchions and instructional signs will be going up to help motorists find the correct places to park.

    Thank you for the pictures. I appropriated them to respond to an aggrieved driver on Twitter. Arlington apparently did show up to ticket every car on the block.

    That guys cropping job on his pictures while saying there is "no guidance" on the new parking pattern is the most disingenuous thing I've seen in awhile.

    No parking signs and tickets seem to have done the trick!

    I walked by there last evening. The entire bike lane was full of parked cars again. But this morning, the bike lane was empty.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they had some help from Mr. Tow Truck. No parking signs should mean more construction happening today.

    Why didn't they put in protected bike lanes (as exists on S Hayes Street) along 24th street? It looks like there is room; they just need to move the bike lane to the curb, put in bollards and change where the parking lane is.

    My guess is either because of the large number of driveways or the bulb-out at 25th Street, but I'm not positive.
