I composed a long post explaining to you the way the MV laws are regarding utility work and traffic restrictions, but it timed out before I had a chance to post it. So, I'm just going to say you better know the laws and what you're talking about before you post your response, because I do. It's what I do for a living.

In a nutshell I can't block a sidewalk without closing it due to the ADA laws, but I can legally park in a bike lane, with my cones out, until our work function is complete. Remember, I'm a cyclist too, and I don't like it either, but that is the way it is.
