[Orlando, FL] Debris in bike lane, S. Chicasaw Trail (Bridge)

Hi. I saw debris in the bike lane while traveling to/from grocery store from my apartment.

Here's the image:



The problem I'm seeing is that with the debris in the bike lane, it seems that cyclists only use the sidewalk for transportation. I bent over just to take a picture of it.

Is it possible to notify the Depart of Transportation Authority other via phone to remove the debris in the bike lane? I'm hearing impaired, so I came here to ask.

There's no sidewalk in the other side of the bridge as seen here:



I took it using Google Street View, even though the view of the street looks outdated (with no debris in the left side of the bike lane.

Thanks drew55. I sent the MetroPlan Orlando an e-mail (now I can do that with my Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone ).

The issue has been resolved by someone, which appears to come from OrangeCountyFL.net, however, I didn't see anywhere where I can contact them.

I guess I'll have to do some more searching.

Thanks guys. The debris have been removed and swept off from the bike lane.
