Default Trail Hazard

Eastbound of SE 45th/Johnson Creek on the Springwater. There is a wheel swallowing pot hole directly in the center of the right lane of the trail at the farthest east parking lot entrance for the Precision Castparts plant across the street. Use caution in this area, it will break wheels and heads.

Don't know it this is the correct thread for this information but thought it should be identified. Be careful out there...

Default Trail Hazard

Will do bikieboy, thanks. I'll also send message to precision cast since it's their driveway into their parking lot that has the hazard..

Default Trail Hazard, UPDATE

If it were this post to spur the results then it appears this was a great way to get the word out. An excellent patch job has been completed on this hazard. Many thanks to all involved.

Thumbs up

Mung, glad you got a good result, & thanks for taking the time to let them know! Don't forget to email your praise to the Parks folks who did the work to let them know you noticed their responsiveness, & copy Commissioner Saltzman's office.

People respond to praise in a positive way!

Yeah, great job - I was looking for this hole the other day when riding home and couldn't see a trace of it. There was however a LARGE section of pavement which looked replaced. Glad to see some repairs get done quickly when they've been called in.
