to be plastic bollards.

It looks like PBOT will have to head back to the drawing board in their effort to create separation between bike and auto traffic on the NW Lovejoy ramp leading down from the Broadway Bridge.
About a month ago, PBOT installed 34 plastic bollards (a.k.a. wands) on the ramp in order to prevent people in cars from driving in the bike lane. (The presence of newly installed streetcar tracks is causing some people to straddle them, thus putting their vehicle into the bike lane.)
This morning when I checked up on them, there were only about 13 — out of 34 — bollards left standing…
I haven’t heard back from PBOT as to what they plan to do next. We’ll keep you posted.
