Bike Lane Issues

The Saginaw River separates my hometown of Bay City, Michigan and four draw bridges allow access to the east and west banks of that river. Problem is, only one of those bridges, Liberty Bridge, has a bike lane and the city has a very low priority of keeping those two lanes clear from snow, broken glass and all other sort of debris, despite the growing number of year-round cyclists.

Although the city has a webpage to report such issues within the community, it took exactly one week and three separate requests before the city responded to clean the bike lanes.
