Dear Commissioner D’Antonio:
This is to bring to your attention the need for replacement and refurbishment of shared lane markings on several of the streets in Albany.
The most serious case is Lincoln Ave., the first street in Albany to receive the markings. In this case, many markings are deteriorated, some are illegible, and some are, in fact, gone. (My recollection is that there was an installation issue with this street, and that DGS repaired them shortly after original installation.)
On other “shared lane streets,” plows, sweepers, salt/sand, and traffic have worn the markings.
I trust that you will attend to this issue in order to encourage more cycling in the city as well as to continue enhancing our bicycle friendly community ranking with the League of American Bicyclists.
