DOT Removes Ghost Bike from Cyclist’s Memorial
According to Bicycle Commuters of Anchorage, the State Dept. of Transportation removed a bike in memory of a fallen cyclist because it was not DOT compliant.
William Curry, Jr., was killed April 5 when a car struck his bicycle.
The Bicycle Community of Anchorage has since been mourning the loss of Curry and set up a memorial, Ghost Bike, at the intersection of Tudor and C Street.
But the memorial was taken down—for safety reasons, the group says it was told by state transportation officials.
The BCA is currently working with the Department of Transportation on getting a new memorial up by April 15, when Curry was expected to ride.
