Sometime today all of the ghost bikes were removed from Connecticut and R. It is unclear who removed them.
This morning, they were all in place, though the DDOT laminated tags had been removed. This evening, all of the bikes, including the one that had been locked to the light post at the original ghost bike site, were gone.
There was one remaining ghost bike, further up Connecticut Avenue, outside of the Academy for Educational Development building, between Florida Avenue and T Street.
UPDATE: TheWashCycle reports that DPW removed the bicycles on Friday. They also note that the part of DC code cited on the DDOT tags appeared to be relevant only to locked bicycles.
Again, this all likely would have been avoided had there been better communication between the Mayor's Office (supposedly) and DPW.
