After the bike lane change on Blue Island

Regardless of the presence, configuration, and design of pavement markings, people will park their automobiles here. To ensure that such parking doesn't inhibit bicycle traffic, CDOT has designed the pavement markings in such a way to accommodate the violating parkers.

 

See what happened on Blue Island Avenue. Before, the bike lane was curbside and people parked in the bike lane daily:

Then the bike lane was moved to be offset from the curb, and people parked in the same place (yet parking here is still illegal): ABOVE PHOTO

 

Parking was illegal before and after the bike lane moved, but at least said illegal parking doesn't block the bike lane.
