Some time in the last couple of days, the 2nd Street protected bike lane was damaged when a car crashed through the pylons into the side of the 2nd Street Tunnel heading into Downtown Los Angeles. Sahra Sulaiman snapped this picture yesterday and reports that at least three of the barrier pylons were removed, a trail of debris was left behind, and even a tire can be seen in the picture.

LADOT is aware of the crash and immediately put in an order for the pylons to be replaced. As Jon Kirk Mukri often complains, there is a backlog of LADOT road projects so there is no timeline on when the pylons might reappear. They might be there already. It might take weeks.

There are no details released to the public on the crash. This could mean that it has not been reported.
