BOSTON (CBS) – Bicyclists in Somerville are dealing with a dangerous obstacle – a utility pole right in the middle of a new bike lane on Beacon Street.

City councilor J.T. Scott told the Boston Globe the pole was supposed to be moved about two feet to the right last year.

Instead, a bright green bike lane was painted right around it.

MassDOT says it is looking into the situation.

For now, caution tape was put around the pole to warn oncoming cyclists.
