A: In a situation where road construction reduces traffic to two lanes, with one lane designated as a bike lane and a sign indicating "bike lane closed," it is generally not permissible to drive in the bike lane. The sign indicating that the bike lane is closed is likely meant to inform drivers that the bike lane is temporarily unavailable due to construction or maintenance work. Drivers are expected to stay within the designated vehicle lanes and not use the closed bike lane. Failing to comply with such traffic regulations may result in a traffic violation. It's essential to follow posted signs and road markings to ensure safety and adherence to traffic laws.
