A Bike Lane Blunder in Los Angeles
It seems that a new green-painted bike lane along Spring Street in downtown Los Angeles, the most filmed stretch of street in town, has created an inconvenience for the city's filmmakers.
Now that early mistakes in the application of the paint seem to have been corrected, the current problem results from the color of the paint which has been mandated by the federal government. It seems that the painted lane ruins Spring Street's use as a stand-in for historic Anytown, USA, and is not "digitally erasable Hollywood green."
Now that a bulk of the filming has moved one block over to Main Street, the Times wants to make extra-sure that a new bike lane planned for that street doesn't repeat past mistakes.
