  1. Bike lane hazard: Bertelsen & 1st Avenue.

    Last year a construction company put asphalt from the curb into the bike lane at First and Bertelson. Well they did it again, this time with gravel to create an “exit” for trucks. This forces cyclists to swerve, possibly out into busy traffic to avoid the mound and the scattered gravel. In addition the gravel is large enough that a bike tire could hit a piece and cause rider and bike to crash. The construction company (Odell Construction) had to remove the asphalt and cut out the curb in accordance with city regulations. The curb cut out is still in place is being used as an entrance to the site. I ride along Bertelsen to work everyday (and during a daily ride at lunchtime).
    Took a photo of the gravel at about 2 pm Friday after I almost crashed due to the loose gravel. It looks like they are trying to keep the gravel contained, which is appreciated, but it still encroaches on the bike lane. I have reported this to the city.
