Downtown Burnside sidewalk blockage . This is an issue

Due to a commercial refrigeration unit (wtf???) and other general debris, junk and such. A busy sidewalk is entirely blocked. Consequently, pedestrians, as you can see, are walking in the bike lane, which can then lead into bicycle to detour into the road upon seeing pedestrians, thus increasing the chance of bike vs automobile incidents, especially when they detour abruptly or only for a short distance. This site was still blocked as of February 28, 21.

The failure of city to prevention conditions like this from proliferating is a threat to public safety.
