Wait. What. A brand new street has parking that requires driving through the bike lane?A couple other disappointments about Columbia Avenue that originally had such promise.
The sidewalk on the north side of the road is 6ft wide from the edge of the building pictured. When somebody opens the door from one the of the CRUs, it will come out half way into the sidewalk- it just seems really inadequate and not a pleasant experience - just concrete. Does this new sidewalk infastructure look pleasant to anyone?

On the south side of the street, I don't like the parked cars located where they are. The bike lane runs between the traffic lane and the parked cars.
As you can also see, you get a bit wider of a vehicle parked there like a Tesla (some wider than 7ft) or Ford F150 at nearly 7ft wide) and they will be part way into the bike lane. The white VW is less than 6 ft wide and is already off the edge. There are bollards in the other side so vehicles can't park too close to those or can't open door.
