    Approximately 8:36 a.m. today, A.R.T. bus eastbound on Central near Laguna, route number 766, bus number (I think) was 1920, encroached on bicycle lane as it passed me, with its wheels on the stripes separating the bike lane from the car lane and its right-hand mirror within several feet of my head, well inside of the bike lane space.
  • Girard Blvd Ne & Lomas Blvd Ne Albuquerque, NM, 87106, USA - Summit Park

    Girard NB at Lomas, bicycle lane is blocked by concrete work, no warnings/share the road/bicycles may use full lane ahead of point where cyclists have to merge into automobile lane.

    Does not meet MUTCD.

  • 1701 Miracerros Pl Ne Albuquerque, NM, 87106, USA - Netherwood Park

    Traffic control devices for work being done on Indian School are once again blocking the bicycle lane without proper warnings, forcing bicycles to merge into auto lane with no warning for cars or cyclists.

    Doesn't comply with MUTCD.

  • 1212 Rio Grande Blvd Nw Albuquerque, NM, 87104, USA - Albuquerque

    Barricades for the ongoing repaving work on Rio Grande SB as you approach I40 are once again blocking the bicycle lane without proper "bike lane closed ahead"/"share the road"/"bikes may use full lane".

    Doesn't comply with MUTCD.

  • Broadway Blvd Ne Albuquerque, NM, 87102, USA - Martineztown

    Traffic barricades being deployed for some sort of construction that hasn't started yet are blocking the Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. bicycle lane WB in the area of Broadway.

    A bunch of "Road Work Ahead" signs are partially blocking the lane east of Broadway, forcing bikes into the car lane without the required "Bike Lane Closed Ahead" or "Bikes May Use Full Lane" signs. It's been this way for three days, even though the construction it's apparently warning us about has not yet started.

    Today, right at Broadway itself (see picture) the sign company has now just stacked a bunch of its signs, sideways, blocking the lane completely.

    Bicycle lanes are traffic lanes, not road shoulders.

  • 4600 Stafford Pl Nw Albuquerque, NM, 87120, USA - La Luz De Sol

    Coors SB at Namaste/Western Trail. Traffic barricades blocking bike lane with no "Bike Lane Closed" or "Share the Road" or speed control ahead of time to warn cyclists and cars, only a single "Road Work Ahead" sign. Forces cyclists to either cut through the barricades into the construction zone or merge into fast-moving traffic on Coors.

    Does not comply with MUTCD.

  • 3801-3869 Indian School Rd Ne Albuquerque, NM, 87110, USA - Altura

    Appreciate the "Bike Lane Closed Ahead" and "Share the Road" signs on Indian School EB between Hermosa and Morningside.

    Unfortunately, the only thing blocking the bike lane at this point *is* the "Share the Road" sign. No construction anywhere to be seen.

    Plus, the "Bike Lane Closed Ahead" sign is completely blocking a sidewalk.

    Violates MUTCD and city ordinance 6-5-2-11 regarding removal of traffic control devices once work is done.

  • 1626-1706 Central Ave Albuquerque, NM, 87104, USA - Huning Castle

    See cases #200521-00058 and #200523-000501, both closed with a notation that y'all were gonna contact SWS and have them fix it.

    It's been a week now, calling SWS doesn't seem to be working to bring this traffic control plan into compliance with MUTCD.

  • 3629-3639 Cutler Ave Ne Albuquerque, NM, 87110, USA - Albuquerque

    Not that I have much hope at this point, but for completeness sake this time I'm trying a more clear illustration of the problem that has been repeatedly reported here on SCF and to 311 and via direct calls to DMD sign inspection.

    I hope this photo helps illustrate the problem, or at least serves as viral clickbait.

    Bike trail underpass detour beneath Carlisle, at Cutler. Sends bikes the wrong way down a one way street. This is the 13th day this detour has been in place, unfixed, despite repeated complaints.

  • 2412 Carlisle Blvd Ne Albuquerque, NM, 87110, USA - Albuquerque

    See 311 reports 200514-002014 and 200518-002093 and
    SCF case #200521-000880.

    For more than a week, there's been a bike trail closure on the Carlisle underpass between Cutler and Interstate 40 with a detour that sends cyclists the wrong way down a one way street.

    Sending cyclists the wrong way down a one way street does not meet the MUTCD requirement that traffic control plans consider the safety of all road users. It's inconceivable that a traffic control plan sending cars the wrong way down a one way street would have remained in place and unfixed for more than a week.

    An additional detour was added that diverts cyclists onto Menaul Boulevard, which is in no way safe for cyclists.

    I guess this really isn't very dangerous, but only because no cyclist would be stupid enough to actually do what the detour signs tell them to do.

    In the meantime, the work requiring the closure appears to have been completed for the better part of a week.

    In all three cases the 311/SCF reports were closed before the problem was actually dealt with, which is a disturbing pattern here. In this case, the action taken was to request the sign company to remove the barricades. The sign company has not, the needlessly dangerous situation remains. Calling a sign company, if the sign company does not actually do anything (a pattern in these situations), should not constitute a successful response to a citizen request.

    The sign contractor is clearly in violation of city ordinance 6-5-2 here, along multiple dimensions - a traffic control plan that doesn't meet MUTCD as required, and leaving the barricades there long after the work is completed. But as long as y'all won't enforce the rules and implement the penalties allowed under the ordinance, this problem will continue. The sign companies face no consequences.

    Don't just tell us again that you're going to call the sign company. Tell us how you're going to actually fix this problem.

  • Central Ave Albuquerque, NM, 87104, USA - Huning Castle

    This is a DMD issue, not the parks department.

    Road work closure on Central, EB, at Laguna. Blocking bike lane without MUTCD-required bike lane close/share road signs.

  • 1201 Rio Grande Blvd Nw Albuquerque, NM, 87104, USA - Albuquerque

    Please do not refer this to Parks and Recreation and close it here. This is an issue for the Department of Municipal Development, which handles street traffic control measures. Previous version of this - case #200430-000259 - was improperly closed. Parks and Recreation has nothing to do with these.

    Rio Grande SB at Lilac. Barricades closing bike lane with no "Share the Road" or "Bike Lane Closed Ahead" warnings. Doesn't comply with MUTCD etc. This is at the start of the big repaving project underway on Rio Grande south of I40.

    This is a particularly dangerous one - three lanes (two for cars, one for bikes, along a heavily used bike route) dumped into a single lane right at a freeway interchange, with all the complex interactions that entails. Would be great if you could get the sign company to fix ASAP.

  • Dr Martin Luther King Jr Ave Nw Albuquerque, NM, 87102, USA - Downtown

    Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd/Marquette railroad overpass headed westbound in downtown Albuquerque. "Road Work Ahead" sign obstructing half of the vehicular lane normally devoted to bicycles, forcing those vehicles to merge close to or into the automobile lane. Particularly dangerous spot for this - cars often going fast, with poor sight lines as they crest the hill crossing the railroad tracks.

    No "Share the Road" or "Bicycle Lane Closed Ahead" signs are posted, as called for in MUTCD in situations where there is no alternative to blocking the bike lane.

  • 816 Carlisle Blvd Ne Albuquerque, NM, 87106, USA - Albuquerque

    How can we get a systematic fix to this problem? I count at least 23 of these SeeClickFix reports in less than a year. Over and over, sign contractors are failing to follow the MUTCD and basic safety practices. We file reports, sometimes things get fixed, often they don't, but in every single case we've got an unsafe situation on the streets in the meantime. We almost never see this done correctly in the first place.

    What city process is there through which, per MUTCD, there's some sort of check on the temporary traffic control measures plan ahead of time so we could get these things done right from the beginning rather than having to file complaint after complaint?

    Carlisle SB, north of Lomas.

  • Central Ave Nw Albuquerque, NM, 87104, USA - Albuquerque
    Five "Road Work Ahead" signs blocking the bicycle lane, Central westbound crossing the Rio Grande (the river, not the street).
  • Central Ave Ne & Monroe St Ne Albuquerque, NM, 87108, USA - Highland

    I filed a report this morning about a loop detector on Monroe southbound at Central that did not detect my metal bicycle:

    case #200310-000651
    https://seeclickfix.com/issues/7531093-monroe-sb-at-central-loop-detector-fails-to-detect-bicycles

    It was immediately closed with a cryptic

    "Thank you for submitting this request, it has been resolved. Notes:
    -------
    Resolved. Closed in VUEWorks
    ------- "

    This provides me, a member of the public, with zero useful information about what is being done, has been done, or will be done in the future to address the issue I am raising.

    What does "Closed in VUEWorks" mean has been done about the loop detector that doesn't work?

  • Monroe St Ne & Central Ave Ne Albuquerque, NM, 87108, USA - Highland
    Monroe SB at Central, loop detector fails to detect metal bicycles. This is one of the intersections with Kermit green pavement paint and a sign directing cyclists to use said Kermit green painted loop detector to trip the signal.
  • 518 Atrisco Dr Nw Albuquerque, NM, 87105, USA - Albuquerque

    Five days after y'all said you'd inform Advantage signs to fix the dangerous situation on Atrisco, nothing has been done. See

    https://seeclickfix.com/issues/7429933-atrisco-bike-lane-suddenly-ends

    case #200216-000263

    Construction zone collapses traffic NB Atrisco north of Central into the bike land with no "share the road" or "bike lane closed" signs to warn both motorists and bicyclists, and no alternate route.

    Trying to ride up Atrisco on a bicycle today, I had *four* motorists swing around me through the barricades into the oncoming lane to pass me, one honking at me, one going so fast they clipped one of the barricades when they were swerving back into the bike lane after passing me.

    I realize "share the road" signs can't protect me from dangerous drivers who will ignore the signs, but the least we can ask is for y'all to comply with MUTCD on these road closures. Of the twenty times I have reported signage failures over the past year, this is by far the most insanely dangerous example I have encountered.
