Have you ever washed your car the day before it rains only to have to wash it all over again? Well, something similar happened with Spring Street's brand spanking new day-glo green bike lane.

The lane was unveiled just before Thanksgiving to great fanfare, but the days after were wet and rainy so the $50,000 paint job never really got a chance to dry. Now the lane looks like washed away sidewalk chalk, which you can see in the picture above. LADOT is scheduled to give the lane another coat of paint that hopefully will have time to fully dry this time.

LA Streetsblog complains that the city should have been patient and waited for a drier week in the first place.
