Anyone else seen these signs around town?

Cyclists heading up the Clinton Street bike lane in Brooklyn Heights are getting a nod from the construction crew whose elevator is jutting into their right-of-way. The big orange markers, labeled "Department of Transportation," start a full block ahead of the obstruction at the corner of Montague Street.

No word from DOT as to whether the city is now requiring contractors to post an alert when they block a lane.

Taken in May, the picture below shows a much more disruptive project on the Sixth Avenue bike route, in Manhattan. That monster squatted the lane with no warning at all. (See "Bike Lanes are for Bikes -- Right?")
