Not until Jolie is elected.
My recollection is that the city did not want to do much more than their standard fare at the time (maybe a paint buffer, but certainly not protected) and advocates and neighborhood people wanted a safer design. To try and please everyone, they added more on-street parking than their own standards allow and that created the sight line issues. As I've pointed out on Twitter, these sight line issues in the name of more on-street parking capacity occur all over the city and are not unique to Armour.
The addition of delineators is interesting, as they are an inexpensive way to reduce bike lane blockages. But in the case of Paseo bike lanes, Parks told the city they could not add anything vertical because the Paseo is historic.
