On March 18 at approximately 9:45pm the traffic signal for eastbound 55th Street at Shattuck failed to detect me on my bicycle. A car traveling westbound on 55th at Shattuck did get a green, but my side of the street stayed red. I sat through two signal phases this way but never got a green until a car showed up behind me.

This issue has been reported multiple times, marked as resolved, but then becomes an issue again. Regardless of whether the actuation is fixed, please change the phasing so that both sides of 55th always get a green light simultaneously, even if traffic is only detected on one side. And if the actuation can not be adjusted to reliably detect bikes in all conditions, this signal should be placed on a recall, not actuated, phasing 24/7.
