At the corner of Main & Howley, where the Shur Save is, where you’d go if you’re heading from Liberty towards Friendship, is a real freaky one. It’s a drain grate that has somehow broken up/collapsed, leaving not only a huge gaping hole into the sewer the likes of which I’ve only seen in the west indies, but also a bunch of rusty skewers waiting to impale the next unaware cyclist. I called 311 as soon as I got home but, 311 is closed for the day (WTF?) So… WATCH OUT.
I try to avoid this intersection, not only because of that but because the road is terrible in general. If it gets any worse I will start riding through it again, once it becomes one big pothole it won’t be bad.
Yes the whole interchange is wretched. Turning left from Liberty is always hair-raising in traffic, with all of those little potholes just waiting to throw you off into the path of a 77 bus. But I can’t think of a better alternative… Staying on Liberty thru Bloomfield?
