As usual, I passed along the entire length of the Penn Ave lanes last night. The repaving could have been a complete shit-show, with cars routed through the bike lanes for some portions, lots of weaving around cones all around, and some equipment parked in the lanes. But there were also workers directing traffic and monitoring each affected intersection and doing a great job at it. Struck me that DDOT deserves praise for this one.

Struck cyclist should sue the Fine Arts Commission and the DMV. Might be impossible to win anything, but would get their attention maybe.

While the DMV does not enforce the no U-turns, the signs still say it is illegal, so anyone injured should be able to sue for a clear breach of the law. Even under DC's contributory negligence standard, a bike in a bike lane vs taxi breaking the law should be a winning case.
