This is a pothole public service announcement for all you Vancouver area commuters. (I will now use my patented funnel-down method) If you are going to use the Oak Street Bridge to head into Vancouver, stay out of the left lane at least until you pass the mother of all potholes at the south-ish end of the bridge. It is a sight to behold and certainly not one to drive through, because as the children’s song goes…”can’t go over it, can’t go under it, can’t go around it, have to go through it.” If you ARE in that left lane it looms down out of no where and there truly is no where to go but through it, saying a brief prayer to Saint Chromius the patron saint of hubcaps. I’ve managed to drive through it twice and lived to tell the tale, although the second time they had to send search and rescue out to retrieve me.
I’m just trying to do my part to get you all where you have to go safely and without dented hubcaps. If you’ve noticed any lethal potholes feel free to post them here. Let’s try to use the internet for good.
Update: Pothole now repaired. You may return to your regular lane preference on the Oak Street Bridge.
