Unhappy SW Cedar Hills Blvd... Now With Added Gaps!!!

Mixed bag today...

As I was coming home from going to the Orthopedic and Fracture Clinic (a pair of nasty bone bruises, but no fractures or torn ligaments), I noticed that ODOT had fixed the blackhole grates on SW Cedar Hills Blvd... Kinda.

I'm kinda getting tired of the word "kinda". I send my knife to Victorinox, and they kinda fix it (saw is still bent). I request that safety improvements get made, and they kinda get overlooked... You kinda get my drift.

In this old photo, you can see how the grate is really recessed due to overlays not bringing up the grate to the new street level.



Now, it's level, but Wait! What are those new gaps?!



Yup, they're wide enough to swallow my Ranger model Swiss Army Knife (and my knife is wider than a road bike's tires).




Close but no banana...
