Heads up on bike lane closures

From Jonathan Niehof

Several sections of bike lane throughout town are being intermittently
closed for brief work on/under the sidewalk (the network initiative?)
Most are easy to spot, but the section on southbound Diamond across
from the high school is closed just after the north overpass, meaning
you can't see the cones until it's almost too late. The limited
sightline back then makes a merge difficult. Cyclists should keep an
eye out. Coupled with avoiding the right hook at Sandia and Metzger's,
this might require controlling the lane for a good long stretch. So
motorists should also keep an eye out.
