A little gift from your friends at the streets department

This morning, I'm flying down Lincoln for the "Three Blocks of Adrenaline" part of my morning commute. Since the streets have been dry for a few days now, I've been riding back at my normal speed, which, on Lincoln, is usually 18 or 20 mph (that's just a guess). In rush hour traffic, I have no problem keeping up. I was a little late this morning, so there were way fewer cars on Lincoln, which meant they were all going faster, so I was cranking as hard as I could.
When I came upon this, just after the intersection of Lincoln and 14th. "Whoa whoa whoa whoa, shit," I said, no time to really brake, and hoped I didn't hit this and flop into the next lane and have a car run over my head.
(this was taken looking up 14th Avenue, so I hit this going from right to left in the photo)
I don't know what the hell's going on here, but I'm definitely glad I was a little late for work today. In full-on traffic, I would have either crapped my pants or been hit.
