With a bit of snow yesterday and rain overnight, Portland is a sheet of ice this morning. Are you still riding?
We warned you.
If you rode into work this morning and are reading this, congratulations: You survived one of the most harrowing commutes of 2015. And I’m only slightly joking.
I almost didn’t.
PDOT just sent out a lengthy press release that gives an overview of their status and strategy in tackling the ongoing issues created by this week’s severe weather. The full press release is below (scroll to the bottom for some biking and walking tips):
City Crews Working to Clear Main Streets of Ice
Neighborhood Streets Still Very Icy
Now that was a bit scary.
I just arrived at our office in the Central Eastside after a challenging and harrowing ride from North Portland. I consider myself a pretty skilled rider, but with many streets covered in a sheet of ice, there’s really no chance of staying upright.
