Well, most of the natives are angry that Day Blvd, and subsequently L St and Farragut Rd, have become extensions of 93 and major cut-throughs, so while they might not be fans of bike lanes, they are quite happy about the road diet.

For background, a child was killed on L recently, and another family struck on Farragut before that, which have led to a huge outcry in the neighborhood. The state had already launched a review of Day Blvd and the city is now reacting with interventions on L.
