The street will still be open to pedestrians and bicyclists.

    Perhaps it’s implicit when you say “motorists should follow the detour routes listed below”, but the road (or at least the sidewalk) is remaining open to cyclists and pedestrians. It pays to commute on two wheels! See here:

    Perhaps not as clear as it should be. We’ll add the specifics. Thanks for noting that.
