This blog thread posted by the Irving Inquisition uses some explicit language, as well as depicting some aspects of life in North Minneapolis that some readers may find objectionable. Reader discretion is advised.
1st Up: Single Bridge to the Other Side
Should you find yourself needing to cross the river over to Northeast Minneapolis, brace yourself and plan ahead. Broadway is the only way across thanks to the Lowry and Plymouth Avenue bridges being closed simultaneously.
|Brake lights as far as the eye can see.|
Traffic lines like this are the standard now, not the exception. Don’t expect to make good time in either direction. We could look at the bright side of this. At least there will be a cute little bike path for the Lowry Bridge… That’s if they ever get the thing built before the end of days.
Jerk Du Jour: Minneapolis Moonscape
What the fuck is this shit? I pay all kinds of taxes so the city can fix the streets. The moment your vehicle enters this municipality, your suspension is assaulted by waves and waves of craterous potholes. Random splits in the roads appear as if an L.A. earthquake tore the streets open.
|You can go fishing in those puddles.|
|This street needs a new street.|
On the flip side of the coin, the moment you leave this municipality, your vehicle drives as it was designed to. You know? On a paved street!! I’m not about to run out and buy a Humvee just so I can have the esteemed honor of driving down Washington or 26th Avenue. Come on Minneapolis, get your shit together and fix the streets.
Minneapolis Moonscape… Today’s Jerk Du Jour.
