Cambridge rider Frank Edwards writes about "potholes and severe depression."
"In Cambridge, on Fountain Street heading north just by the old Knotty Pine, there is an old road cut repair 3 feet wide by 6 feet long that has sunken at least 6-8 inches and forces a cyclist into the middle of the road to avoid it.
"Between the Shantz Hill light on Fountain Street and the above depression, several of the catch basins have become severely depressed once again, forcing a rider into the middle of the road to avoid them. This situation worsened dramatically from last year to this year.
"On Fountain street heading south towards the Grand River, there are numerous broken patches and depressions between Shantz Hill and the beginning of the bicycle lane which force a cyclist into the middle of the road, all need substantial repair. This particular section of Fountain has heavy traffic and is narrower than the northbound lane..because cars are allowed to park on the Northbound side making the road problems even more dangerous. Most cyclist ride on the sidewalk in this area...I do not.
"I believe Fountain Street is a regional road."
Something for Regional Chair Ken Seiling to think about, perhaps?
