Luxurious Lanes

I've noticed this over the last few weeks, but now that I have a forum, I thought I'd share my thoughts about it.

The City of Indianapolis has redesigned some one-way roads downtown, converting four-lane roads to three-lane roads with bicycle lanes. However, to the best of my knowledge, the city never told anyone about their decision. And neither did they do a very good job painting the lanes, as the lanes shift in the middle of intersections. Seriously, who decided it would be a good idea to shift lanes across traffic?

It's all very reminiscent of this Seinfeld episode, in which Kramer decides to convert his stretch of four-lane highway to a two-lane highway. While traffic hasn't been that terrible, I can just imagine someone in the mayor's office driving down Michigan St. (or New York St.) with a can of paint to block out the old lane lines.
