Flushing Drivers Out of the Bike Lane in Omaha
Omaha bikers have been dealing with same crap that inspired Wichita. So, to remedy their situation, they turned to the item most associated with removing blockages. "A group of bicycling advocates glued 120 plungers onto 63rd Street north of Shirley Street about 10:30 a.m.," Christopher Burbach reports for the Omaha World Herald.
City officials told Burbach that building a protected bike lane on 63rd would cost approximately a million dollars per mile, but that estimate does not wash with my own research, which uncovered plungers selling for $12 a piece.
