This morning I received an email from Cobb DOT. They said “If you want to film the guys installing the solution – head over there this morning! Unfortunately (or fortunately) I was riding. As soon as I got the message I headed right on over to see what was going on. Hard to say I was sad everything was DONE! Wow! We recorded a little video to show you exactly what we found! I am generally not much of a vlogger…. but in this case, I thought it was appropriate!
Now – looking at the video, some safety minded individuals will notice a large hole along the concret. This concerned me a little so I did a little analysis of the situation. I’m happy to tell you that I don’t think that is going to be much of a problem. If you are THAT close to the wall, you’ve done something really stupid already. You are likely to crash. As this photo show – you have to be closer than a pedal width to the wall to get a wheel in… not something I do often!
While I do question why they would do it that way, they may have a valid reason. That was NEVER the point of contention here nor will it be now. I will leave you – and this subject – with a photo that shows an ABSOLUTE positive action taken by Cobb DOT. Outside of this being done prior to the road opening – NOTHING could have been done better. Thank you very much!
