Reader photo: 2nd Street tunnel

The 2nd Street tunnel in downtown Los Angeles
(Lizette Carrasco)

The 2nd Street tunnel is the latest flash point between drivers and bicyclists in downtown L.A. Both sides claim it as a key route into and out of downtown. With the addition of buffered bike lanes, drivers bemoan the loss of a driving lane and increased backups through the tunnel.

You wouldn’t know any of that, though, from this photo by Lizette Carrasco of a deserted tunnel on Friday night.
