Motorists mistakenly using new Donald Street bike lane

By Jean-Sébastien Marier, CBC News Ottawa, July 30, 2019 A new $1.2-million intersection designed to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists in Ottawa appears to be confusing some drivers. Several vehicles travelling east on Donald Street have been seen using a new segregated bike lane to turn south onto St. Laurent Boulevard. "It [happens] every day. Every day," said Ismael Awaleh, vice-president of the Overbrook Community Association.

City has since installed new flex posts to end the confusion
