Are you serious with this? Quit parking city trucks in protected bike lanes.
One can rarely travel down CPD during the day without seeing a variety of trucks parked in either bike lane: delivery vans, construction crews, landscaping, and city vehicles can all be frequently spotted. The redesign of CPD has been an abject failure and unfortunately this is the only option the city has left these workers (except for the delivery vehicles, they could use the loading docks at each building, but i digress).
Cambridge needs to 1) Realize the redesign of parking and bike lanes on CPD was a failure (their own city vehicles don't even follow the parking/traffic signage) and 2) Correct the issue ASAP. I suggest removing the current bike lanes (which dump directly into Alewife traffic with no continuation), opening up parking to both sides, adding 2-way "share the road" signage for bike traffic, and keeping loading zones available for trucks. Considering CPD is a short road with a designated bike path 50 yards to the north the dual in-street bike lanes seem unnecessary. There needs to be better traffic flow, and importantly more parking available that does not interfere with in the road bike lanes.
Also, adding a large new office building and 2 mega apartment complexes (>1000 residents each) will only exacerbate these issues over the next 6 months. Good thing the city determined there would be "no adverse effect" on traffic by adding several thousand people to this already congested street :)
