Bicycle and Plow Hazard

[Someone removed the metal plate at Broadway and Prescott Street over the weekend of March 1,2, 2008]

A metal plate 30 inches by 40 inches one inch thick was dropped on Broadway near Prescott Street after the snow storm on February 22, 2008. It is a hazard for bicycles and for snow plows. Snow is expected on Friday February 29, 2008.

Thanks for pointing that out. Hopefully it gets removed, soon, before somebody gets hurt.

By the way, I'm trying to compile a map of all such obstacles for bikers, particularly potholes. You can find it here:

Anybody can contribute to this map, so please feel free to add any potholes, metal plates, etc.

Also, if you'd like to run the map on your web site, I'd be happy to send you the code.
