The bike corral outside the Food Co-Op that disappeared before the Fourth Avenue Street Fair was re-installed this week.
The rack was originally taken out to accommodate the streetfair the the thousands of people walking along the route.
Ann Chanecka, the City of Tucson bicycle and pedestrian program manager said it took longer than expected to put the corral back because the attachment to the asphalt wasn’t working well.
There were security issues related to the corral because it was pulling out of the asphalt.
City crews decided to cut out some asphalt and fill it with concrete to provide a more secure attachment.
Chanecka said the the rack would be removed for each streetfair, but that it shouldn’t take as long to put them back.
In addition to the return of the Co-Op corral, two more corrals will be installed soon.
The first will be placed on 9th Street near Fourth Avenue in front of the new restaurant The Coronet.
The second will be on Pennington Street outside Reilly Pizza.
