"I mentioned the dates of this project, but now I can't find the CDOT document that noted them. It was a PDF of a mailer, I believe, that would have been sent to affected property owners. "

"They tend to do a lot of paving and repaving when doing the water main work. Don't be surprised if they tear up the road yet again for other utility work. This is what happened on Damen a while back. "

"Reply 1: BURN! You got me! Reply 2:  This is a stupid discussion. You pointed out my argument "Section 2 received patch repaving where it affected the bike lane and where the water main work is now being done." Whether they were…"

"You must be joking. When a sidewalk is closed, the city will even go to the lengths of using the bike lane as the temporary sidewalk, then not taking any space away from cars for people riding bikes. "
