Description

The bike lane stripes on Spring Garden St bridge are faded where the bike lane crosses over the 1-76 westbound turn lane for approximately 20-30 feet. This is INCREDIBLY dangerous. I have had four near-accidents with cars at this location, most recently last night. The drivers cannot see the bike lane, which used to be painted bright blue where it crosses into traffic, and is now so faded you can barely see it. They come flying over the bridge and start to veer into the right-hand turn lane, totally unaware that cyclists may be in the lane for 20-30 feet. This should be a high-priority issue in a city with so many new bike commuters.
